If you become involved in legal proceedings, you will have to transmit various documents to the other party to the dispute and you will receive others in return.


To do so, it may be necessary to serve judicial documents such as the summons notifying that proceedings have begun, appeals, statements of defence, injunctions or extrajudicial documents such as notarised acts in a Member State other than the one in which you are resident.
