It is your constitutional right to apply to the courts and request your right to be returned to you in lawsuits where you think you have been wronged. Do not hesitate to use this right. However, while using this right, you should consider the issue thoroughly.

While filing a lawsuit, you, as the plaintiff, have to pay a certain amount of judgment fee and an advance payment of the amount shown in the list published by the Ministry of Justice every year. If you win the lawsuit, you can get these expenses and fees back from the other party.



If you are not going to benefit from a lawyer, ask the following questions to your cat;

  • Are you sure you have enough information to file a lawsuit?
  • Are you determined to follow up on your lawsuit? Failure to follow up after filing a lawsuit may result in your lawsuit being dismissed or not filed.
  • Have you evaluated what kind of consequences it would have if your lawsuit was concluded negatively? If you have a solicitor, ask him to fully inform you of these matters;
  • a)How much will your lawsuit cost you? (Litigation fee, expenses and attorney fees, etc.)
  • b)What will be the additional cost you will bear if you lose the lawsuit? (Lawsuit fee to be completed, attorney fee to be paid to the other party, court costs etc.)
  • c)Are there any other legal methods that can be applied to remedy the injustice you have suffered?
