In most contracts, there are two or more parties. But the most common would be two. Breaches happen when one of the parties fails to fulfill their duties that are outlined in the terms and conditions of the contract.
In most cases, a breach of contract is grounds for a civil or small claims lawsuit.
The law will consider any violation of the agreed terms as a breach meaning someone has failed to in their part of the initial contract agreement. Having a lawyer go over the original contract at signing will help parties understand their duties for the duration of the agreement.
For breaches of $35,000 or less, you can file in small claims court. It is highly advised you seek the advice of a small claims lawyer to do this as they have the education and experience in small claims court that most do not. We at Legal Solutions specialize in small claims court cases.
