McCall v. Commonwealth, Dept. of Soc. Services
In McCall v. Commonwealth, Dept. of Soc. Services, 20 Va. App. 348, 352-53, 457 S.E.2d 389, 392 (1995), where the pre - 1992 version of Code 16.1-107 was in effect, the party appealing from a juvenile court judgment "did not specify or indicate in any way that he was appealing only the civil contempt citation and not the determination as to the amount of his support arrearage." Id. at 350, 457 S.E.2d at 391.
Noting that McCall initially asserted the limited nature of his appeal only in this Court, we held that the party appealing from a juvenile court judgment is responsible for bifurcating in the notice of appeal to the circuit court the issues the party intends to separately pursue. See id. at 349, 457 S.E.2d at 390.
