It is not always necessary to hire a lawyer in order to assert or defend one’s legal rights when “the facts speak for themselves”. All that may be needed is to have access to the correct format to present the case, accurately insert the facts, etc. onto the form, compile the evidence and provide a copy to the other side before filing at the proper place the document(s) and proof of having provided the material to the other party.
Presenting the case in the proper manner may solve problems or issues that occur in one’s life or business. For those who are confident that they may do so if pointed in the right direction, we have compiled customizable smart plaint templates to be used whenever needed. The plaint templates, are flexible enough to allow for changes without leaving you exposed, may be downloaded without charge on the website.
Our passion to help people write professional plaint documents for court and tribunal presentation inspired us to come up with these high quality customizable documents. The core idea has always been to provide a service that offers HUGE value for a small price (a big bang for the buck). Customize the plaint/your case with relevant facts! Don’t forget to include a Verifying Affidavit, Plaintiff’s Statements, Plaintiff List of Documents and Plaintiff List of Witnesses. Refer to Template 132 – Tenant Landlord Lawsuit. Raymond Nduga, and make sure to organize your documents in that manner. Date and sign them!
Now, you have a complete set of case document as per what the law requires. This is the court’s copy! Proceed and make similar copies of the same set of documents depending on the number of parties you want to serve. Neatly bind them. Done? Good.
Rush to the nearest Court, bump into the registry, give the registry folks the document(s) for court fee assessments, rush to bank, pay, go back and give them the bank payment slips (as proof of payments) and the documents for stamping and filing, leave them with their copy (copies) and walk away with the remaining copies and go serve the Defendants, make sure they (defendants) sign your copy, too (as having received the pleadings. A MUST!).
Until here, you don’t know the law. You have just presented your case based on what happened, facts. And with that, your case has begun! And the good thing, if you did it right, you might win the case without necessarily knowing the law! But what if the other party hires a lawyer to represent them against you? Don’t worry, just contact Raymond Nduga and Yuvenalis Kubwa. We will strike them so hard without mercy like bomber jets by launching legal torpedoes, deploying air-launched cruise legal missiles crushing their lawyers to the ground, to give you a MASSIVE LEGAL WIN IN COURT!
What’s a Plaint? It is one of the main legal documents and format how a litigant presents his or her case in Court (civil cases)! But, we also have other ways of presenting a case in Court depending on the type of a case. Examples: via, 1). Statement of Claim, 2). Memorandum of Claim, 3). Originating Summons (OS), 4). Originating Notice of Motion, 5). Petition(Election, Constitutional, Matrimonial Causes& Winding up Proceedings), 6). Pleadings: in reply, generally, 7). Defence, 8). Defence and Counter-Claim, 9). Defence to Counter-Claim, 10). Reply to Defence, 11). Reply to Defence and Defence to Counter-Claim, 12). Answer to Petition, 13). Answer to Petition and Cross Petition, 14). Response to Petition, 15). The Role of Affidavits and Chamber Summons
A Plaint/Defence/Statement of Claim… are pleadings that contain the particulars of the claim or the defence and help to narrow the issues and reveal the case that each party is making.
Pleadings are supposed to:
i. Disclose whether there is a reasonable cause of action or defence
ii. Define the scope of discovery or interrogatories
iii. Determine the range of admissible evidence
iv. Identify the relief sought from the court
v. Give parties notice of the case to be met and a reasonable opportunity to respond and prepare their case on the basis on the issues disclosed and thus satisfy some of the requirements of procedural fairness
vi. If there are subsequent proceedings, pleadings in the earlier case identify the scope of the defence, known as res judicata, that the previous case or certain issues in it had already been decided.
vii. Define the issues which are in dispute
Principles of Pleadings:
1. Each party should only plead material facts;
2. Any material facts that are not clearly denied will be deemed to have been admitted;
3. Any issue not pleaded cannot be canvassed in court.
Every plaint must contain:
1. Description of Court
2. Case number
3. Names of the parties
4. Description and place of residence of the Plaintiff or his business address;
5. A similar description of the Defendant including address of service
6. If it is a minor the plaint should contain a statement to that effect.
7. It should contain facts constituting cause of action
8. Facts showing that the court has jurisdiction;
9. The prayers of relief sought;
10. The amount if any
11. Value of the subject matter
12. Date of the plaint
13. Signature of the Plaintiff or his agent;
14. Whenever it is for the recovery of money precise amount must be stated;
15. Whenever your plaint refers to a document, it must have an accurate
description of that item.
P.S: Before you file the case, confirm with us to guide you on matters jurisdiction. Jurisdiction means the relevant Court!
P.S.S: It’s always advisable to hire a lawyer to do you complete thorough legal drafting and filing from the beginning to avoid factual and legal errors. But if you are broke, we will catch up with you on the way… risk, the mess might be irreparable! Still, we believe that our templates here are enough to give you a fair win, if not massive! GOODLUCK!
