A: First, I am not a Tennessee lawyer. That being said, whatever are the issues you intend to raise on appeal, the time to appeal is the same. Usually, it's 30 days from the final judgment of the court below. Once the appeal is noted, when you file your brief, you can raise the issue of subject matter jurisdiction--which (usually) you can raise at any time.

A: Lack of Subject Matter Jurisdiction can be raised just about anytime, unlike almost any other legal issue. But If you sit on your rights, you will lose. Find a competent lawyer to file the appeal or Rule 60 Motion.
