Do you need help with your civil law suit?
What about your family matter?
Alison can help.
How would you define the term “civil
A civil law
suit occurs when a person who feels they have been wronged in some way brings a
case for money (we call this damages) against the person who harmed them. The
harm that has occurred is in the way of physical or emotional damages.
jurisdictions the person who starts the civil law suit
is called the Plaintiff and the person who defends the civil law suit is … you guessed it … the Defendant.
Some kinds of
civil law suits are personal injury
matters, property disputes, contract disputes, and matters where a person or
company is considered negligent.
What is a family matter?
A few examples of a family matter are working out
parenting arrangements, property division, divorce, separation agreements,
marriage agreements (pre-nup), and co-habitation agreements.
