The term criminal pertains to or involves crimes and the subsequent administration of justice accordingly. Additionally, a criminal is a person who has conducted himself in a manner causing social harm that calls for punishment according to the degree of offence as prescribed by law. There are two basic conditions for establishment of criminality: The accused must exhibit some guilt of mind or mens rea; and must actually carry out the criminal act. This is called actus reus. Criminal acts may be broadly classified into serious crimes, major offences, contravention of law or a slight or trivial breach of the legal system.
Divorce & Alimony
The process of divorce implies the dissolution of any legalized marriage by way of a competent and recognized court. According to the fault, offences and guilt theories, a marriage is dissolvable only if either party involved in the said marriage has to his credit any matrimonial offence. There are two parties to a divorce: the guilty and the innocent and only the latter can seek a divorce. However, if both contenders are at fault, a remedy cannot be found. Divorce can also happen by mutual consent at the free will of both parties where mutual incompatibility is the main cause.
Motor accidents are said to occur when the driver of any motorized vehicle collides with another vehicle causing bodily harm to either party or both. However, there may be special circumstances when other parties, due to their negligence, are liable for any damage caused. These include: the municipality or state maintaining signs, bridges and roads; car manufacturers as also auto repair shops. The aggrieved or affected party is empowered by law to seek compensation to put him back in his original position prior to the accident. The recovery may be based on lost wages, permanent disfigurement, medical expenses and loss in earning capacity.
Consumer complaints, also called customer complaints are situations where consumers express their dissatisfaction to a party responsible for such dissatisfaction. It usually concerns a problem regarding a service or product. A genuine consumer complaint is also a pointer to the manufacturer or service provider where exactly he is going wrong or lacks in terms of quality. These are usually informal in nature and are addressed directly to companies or service providers who go about resolving them. However, if the company or service provider fails to resolve the issue, the consumer may approach a Consumer Forum for award of appropriate compensation.

According to Sec 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act, the payee has the right to initiate criminal proceedings against the payer and this is a punishable offence. Alternately, the payee can re-present the bounced cheque within 6 months. However, cheques issued as gifts or loans don’t imply any legal liability and indemnifies the payer from prosecution.
