Catholic Church law recognizes the right to appeal. The petitioner has the right to appeal a negative decision. You, as the respondent, as well as the Defender of the Bond, have the right to appeal an affirmative or negative decision. All appeals are heard by the proper court of second instance for Stockton, in San Francisco. An appeal may also be made to the Apostolic Tribunal of the Roman Rota.
