Civil disputes are disputes between individuals and/or legal entities arising from civil law relations. The main legal act regulating civil law relations is the Civil Code of the Russian Federation.
At the same time, in addition to this legal act, there is a huge regulatory framework that regulates various types of civil law relations. In fact, civil disputes can arise in the daily life of every citizen and in the course of economic activity of any legal entity.
Such disputes can often be caused by both targeted dishonest actions and unintentional erroneous actions that led to a violation of legal requirements.
The procedure for considering civil cases
As a general rule, a claim or other pre-trial dispute settlement procedure is mandatory in cases provided for by law or an agreement. The claim is sent to the place of residence of the potential defendant (individual) and to the legal address of the organization with which there are grounds for disputes.
In case of ignoring the claim or in case of refusal to satisfy it, an appeal is made to the court with the corresponding statement of claim. It is important to note that, unless otherwise provided by the contract, for the majority of civil law disputes, a rule is established for applying to the court at the location of the defendant. The exceptions are disputes on the protection of consumer rights, disputes on the protection of labor rights, as well as other cases, including when the contract provides for the consideration of the case in court at the location of the plaintiff or an arbitration clause.
Each of the listed types of disputes has features for consideration, which are important to consider when protecting rights in court.
