What is Civil Litigation? 

Civil Litigation and Civil Law, covers an extensive range of legal disputes between two or more parties regarding civil matters. 
Civil law as opposed to Criminal Law is used to resolve non-criminal disputes, including property disagreements and breaches of contract. 
Civil litigation is a term used to describe the legal process applied to non-criminal matters. Civil litigation is thus the filing and subsequent application of a civil lawsuit; civil litigation is incorporated into a non-criminal dispute to help produce a resolution. Civil litigation will aim to resolve such disputes as, family law disputes, court custody cases, matters involving child support payments, disputes between individuals and credit card companies, disputes involving landlord and tenants, as well as situations that involve a breach of contract. 
Civil litigation is the process of resolving a legal dispute between two or more parties (individuals or business entities) who seek compensation (in the form of money) for damages incurred or specific performances that were not delivered. 
Lawyers or legal professionals who specialize in civil litigation are known as ‘litigators’; legal professionals who practice civil litigation will represent a party at a trial, a hearing, or a form of alternative resolution method, such as arbitrations or mediations—these forms of hearings are heard by administrative agencies, foreign tribunals and federal, state, or local court systems. 
Types of Civil Litigation: 
Civil litigation will encompass a broad range of disputes that will directly enact a number of legal matters. As a result of this widespread characteristic, a civil litigator will typically specialize in a specific practice area.
