For every appeal, there is a limited time period within which the appeal should be filed. Such a limitation is mentioned the Limitation Act, 1963. For appeal in case of a decree passed by lower court in civil suit, the limitation is : Appeal to High Court - 90 days from the date of decree Or order. Appeal to any other court - 30 days from the date of Decree or order.

If you served proper notice to defendants and they failed to appear in court hence ex parties decree be there..

If they totally unaware about judgement then they can file appeal at any moment for lack of knowldge of judgment and decree passed by lower court..
