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

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

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