What Are the Basic Steps of a Lawsuit
All litigation begins with a “Complaint” or a “Petition.” This is a legal document that opens the case in an Arkansas court and sets forth the issues in the case. The defendant must file an Answer to the Complaint or Petition and, generally, that Answer must be filed within thirty (30) days or a default judgment against the Defendant may be filed. Filing a proper Complaint and filing a proper Answer are extremely crucial to a case because one faulty mistake can significantly impact your position and your case.
After the initial Complaint and Answer are filed, the litigating parties then have the opportunity to "discover" what information, documentation, and evidence the opposing party may use a trial. This process is called the Discovery phase of the case. Discovery involves sending Interrogatories, Requests for Production, and other requests and inquiries to the opposing party. Interrogatories are questions that must be answered truthfully and Requests for Production request that the opposing party produce and show you what important documents, information, and evidence that could be introduced into evidence at trial. Discovery may also include the interviewing or "Deposition" of the opposing party, witnesses, or other parties with knowledge of the case at hand.
After the discovery phase, both sides should have a good idea of what the opposing party is likely to argue and what they are going to introduce into evidence at a trial. If the parties cannot come to a mutual agreement to settle the matter, then the parties will establish a court date and set it for a trial.
