Default Can a court extend the appeal deadline?

If a person misses an appeal deadline in a small claims case, can a court extend the time for the appeal?

Isn't the deadline on an appeal fairly absolute?
We don't want the deadline changed and the other side does.
I thought that was next to impossible but the judge seems to be possibly considering it.

You need to take a look at any criminal procedure law in your state, whatever that state is.

It's small claims, H, not criminal.

But we do need to know the state.

Courts generally do not extend such appeal deadlines you are right, but it is not prohibited.

If there is some very valid reason, the court can extend the date.

It does not happen often.

I wasn't thinking when I was typing - I was referring to procedural statutes in general but it didn't come out that way.

Most courts will not extend the deadline.

Rare!

But I have seen it for very extraordinary reasons.
