    Steps of Litigation Process

    Property Litigation falls under civil cases. The main objective of a litigation process is to arrive at a solution, in a just manner, ensureing none of the party has any advantage over the other during trial, at minimum possible expense. There are three steps in the litigation process, that can be described as:

    1) Pre-Trial – The litigation process is instigated when a claim form, known as ‘the plaint’ is filed by the claimant. The claim form contains all the information about the case and that of the parties involved. It also mentions that the court has the pecuniary and territorial jurisdiction for the trial. Another important fact that must be clarified in the ‘plaint’ is of time limitation. It is mandatory that the case is filed within an approved time period for its acceptance in the court.                                  NRI property litigation lawyer will help you submit all the required documents and information to make sure that the case is accepted by the court. Once the case is accepted by the court, the trial will take place.

    2) Trial – Trial is the most important part of the litigation process, as it is during trial that the NRI property litigation lawyer will present his case in front of the judges/jury, keeping the facts and figures, providing witnesses and evidences to back the assertions and claims made. NRI property litigation lawyers will also cross question the witnesses or evidences provide by the opposite party, and lead the argument to the best of his abilities.                                                                              Litigation may last for months or for years, according to the nature and complexity of the case. As it will not always be possible for NRI’s to be present on the hearing day, they can appoint their NRI property litigation lawyer, as their attorney-in-law. This way, your NRI property litigation lawyer will have the right to represent you in the court, even if you cannot be present.

    3) Post-Trial – The end of trial means we have a decision. It can either in favour or against us. If the decision is in favour, the next step would be to seek measures for having the decision implemented, which will require the expertise of NRI property litigation lawyer.

    In case the result is not in favour, there is a scope of re-appealing or to move to higher court. Your NRI property litigation lawyer will be best person to guide on the measures available and how to go about it.
