A: A Notice of Appeal must be filed within 30 days of a final appealable order. If the 30th day falls on a weekend or day that the Clerk of the Court of Appeals is closed, it rolls over to the next open business day. The Notice of Appeal must be accompanied by the filing fee or a request to waive the fee. The Court of Appeals has on rare occasions permitted a Notice to be filed after the 30 days have passed but that is on a case-by-case basis and is extremely fact-specific (in other words, not guaranteed at all to be accepted).

Appeals - either interlocutory or of a final order - should be discussed with an experienced appellate attorney.
