CIVIL LITIGATIONCivil Law (known as Common Law) is a legal process, for non-criminal matters, designed to help produce a resolution between two or more parties. Usually, one of the parties seeks compensation (usually in the form of money) for injuries, damages incurred, or services or products not delivered. There are many instances when a deal or a transaction made with another individual or business falls apart, or a conflict with another person who refuses to honor his or her end of a contract. Civil litigation cases focus on family law disputes, child custody, child support, contract violations, personal injury, property damage and divorce. It also deals with disputes involving landlord and tenants, as well as situations that involve a breach of contract.
