Appeals take a long time, generally at least 6 months. It is very unlikely that the court of appeals will change anything until the appeal is over, and only then if you win. For example, it is very unlikely that the court of appeals will change child custody arrangements until an appeal ends, and only then if you win.
If you want an appeal, you only have 15 days from a final order to start an appeal. The notice you would like to appeal must be filed within the 15 days. Your lawyer cannot start an appeal for you until you talk to your lawyer and request an appeal after the court makes a final order.
