Appealing the decision of the court of cassation: why you need the help of lawyers

Appealing the decision of the court of cassation is an extremely complex and time-consuming process that requires deep knowledge of jurisprudence, experience in working with cassation appeals and understanding of the nuances of the judicial process. It is almost impossible to challenge such a decision on your own and have a chance of success.

  • High level of difficulty:

The process of appealing the decision of the court of cassation is regulated by procedural codes, which contain many strict requirements for the form and content of the complaint, deadlines for its submission, attached evidence, etc. Ignorance of these requirements or their violation may lead to the rejection of the complaint.

  • Specifics of the cassation appeal:

The cassation instance does not check the legality and reasonableness of court decisions on the merits, but only investigates whether the courts of previous instances committed violations of the law. Therefore, for a successful appeal, it is necessary to clearly formulate and justify exactly the violation of legal norms that affected the correctness of the decision.

  • Need for experience and knowledge:

Preparing and submitting an extraordinary cassation appeal requires knowledge and understanding of the practice of the Supreme Court of Ukraine, case law, as well as the ability to correctly interpret and apply legal norms.
