What Is Civil Litigation?

Civil cases are any legal disputes or issues that do not involve criminal charges. Civil court cases may establish fault, but they do not determine guilt in the same way that criminal cases do; the penalties for losing a civil case are usually that you have to pay your opponent an amount of money or comply with his or her wishes in some way. The most notable difference between criminal trials and civil trials is that in criminal trials, guilt must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt; but in civil trials, fault can be proven with just a preponderance of evidence of the plaintiff's claim.
