You can — the legal term for this is appealing. You have 21 days after the decision has been made to file an appeal, and you will need to pay a fee. You also need the court’s permission to file an appeal.

Be aware, the court will only consider your appeal if the Judge has potentially made a legal mistake i.e., if the Judge has misinterpreted the law. If the court feels your appeal is groundless, they are likely to refuse it.

If you are granted an appeal, the case will be reviewed but it is unlikely you will be able to give new evidence. Making an appeal is complicated, so you may want to instruct a lawyer.
