The appeal must indicate where and how the decision of the court of appeal should be amended and what are the grounds for such amendment.

The appellant usually cannot refer to circumstances or evidence not already presented in the district court or court of appeal. An exception is granted, if the appellant has not been able to refer to a circumstance or evidence before or he or she has had a valid reason not to do so.

If the appellant wishes to refer to new evidence, he or she must declare this in the appeal and state what is to be proven by the evidence, as well as why the evidence has not been presented before.
