Courts of general jurisdiction
A claim or other pre-trial dispute resolution procedure is mandatory in cases provided for by law or an agreement (paragraph 7 of article 132 of the Code of Civil Procedure of the Russian Federation, part 3 of article 4 of the RF CAS). In case of non-observance of the claim (pre-trial) procedure, the statement of claim is subject to return by the court (clause 1, part 1, article 135 of the Code of Civil Procedure of the Russian Federation, clause 1, part 1, article 129 of the CAS RF), and if accepted for proceedings, left without consideration (clause 1 part 1 article 222 Code of Civil Procedure of the Russian Federation, paragraph 1 part 1 article 196 CAS RF).
As a general rule, civil cases are considered in the following terms:
Nevertheless, it’s necessary to keep in mind that the courts do not always strictly observe the deadlines established by law, taking into account the complexity of the case, the duration of receiving answers to court requests, conducting expert examinations, and so on. Thus, the terms of consideration of the case largely depend on the workload of a particular court and the complexity of the case under consideration.
If any of the parties does not agree with the decision of the court, then she is given the opportunity to appeal it. The term for filing an appeal is 1 month from the date of production of the court decision in full. However, such period may be extended, taking into account the period of receipt by the party of this judgment. It is important to note that the appeal itself must be filed through the court that issued the appealed decision. This judicial body independently sends an appeal to the court, whose competence includes its consideration.
