If you bring a case against another person, if someone else brings a case against you, or if you are involved in a case, you can go to court.
The process of bringing a case starts with a document: a summons, an initiating document, a petition or a notice of appeal. The document you need depends on the kind of case you want to bring.
If someone brings a case against you, you will be named as a suspect, a defendant, an interested party or a respondent. Which role you are given depends on the kind of case and on whether or not you respond to it.
In ‘Topics’ you will find information about how to bring a case and what happens during the procedure in each specific situation.
Depending on the kind of case, you may have to get a lawyer. Even if you are not required to have a lawyer, you may want to ask a lawyer or another legal expert for advice.
Mediation in addition to legal proceedings brings people together to resolve their conflict. An independent mediator leads the mediation. You can get mediation in any area of law and at any time during the case. The judge can suggest it, or you can ask for it yourself. If you can resolve your dispute through mediation, you may not need to go to court. The people who have the dispute pay for mediation together.
