An action for declaratory judgment is typically brought when parties dispute the interpretation of a binding legal document, such as a contract or a will. A declaratory judgment will establish the rights of the parties by interpreting the legal document. Unlike any other suit, an action for declaratory judgment does not ask the Court to award money damages or to force the other party to do or not do an act.
Classic scenarios where a declaratory judgment may be needed is in a boundary dispute involving real property, the interpretation of a material term in a contract (especially when it determines if a party breached the contract), and the interpretation of a will. If you are in a similar situation, you may need to ask a judge for a declaratory judgment to resolve these legal disputes before a wrong has been committed. Let the Attorneys at Hale Ball help you avoid a messy, protracted conflict by bringing a declaratory action on your behalf so that we can resolve the matter before it gets out of hand.
