Breach of contract disputes
When one party to a contract claims that another party has failed to fulfill the contract’s terms, the non-breaching party may pursue litigation against the breaching party. In these cases, it will first be necessary to determine whether the contract is enforceable. Depending on the type of breach and the resulting financial harm to the non-breaching party, the breaching party may be required to pay monetary damages, or specific performance may be ordered, requiring the breaching party to fulfill their contractual obligations.
Individuals may need to address disputes with other individuals or businesses, and these disputes often involve money owed by one party to another.

At the conclusion of litigation, one party may be ordered to make a monetary payment to the other, or the judge or jury may require them to take specific actions.
