Armend Ahmeti


This paper will present to the reader and all other stakeholders all of the most important elements of civil litigation costs. Herewith, I answered the question of who is obligated with paying the procedure costs at the end of the procedure, who is relieved of these expenses, who is obligated to prepay for expenses, which is the competence of court during deciding upon expenses, which categories of persons are exempt from paying court fees for lawsuits etc. During this brief and substantive analysis, I have analyzed the provisions on civil litigation costs of the respective laws on the contested procedure of the states of Kosovo, Croatia, Serbia, Albania and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Especially, I have devoted a more detailed analysis of Kosovo legislation.

Key words: Civil procedure, Civil litigation costs, Contested procedure, Lawsuits, Legislation
