Abstract

Evidence Law and Practice is the key to succeed on a civil procedure. It is possible to have some rights, but if they cannot be proved the desired legal consequences will not be obtained and the proceedings will not finish in a satisfactory manner. In this article we will explain that civil procedure evidence is governed by the dispositive principle and all the principles arising out of it. The rights disputed in civil procedure are private rights, that is, available to the parties. In this regard the parties are entitled to take action and therefore bring a claim, which means that they define the Court’s powers of decision as it is bound by the parties’ petitions and by all those facts and legal grounds they bring which they consider appropriate to protect their rights. In short, the parties are responsible for providing the means of proof they consider opportune for guaranteeing the successful outcome of their respective claims
