I wish to sue a former employer seeking the remedy of "specific performance" to compel them to execute a signed contract. It does not seem that the Circuit Court has a specific template for this type of complaint. Where can I find the appropriate format to request a writ of summons?
You must file a Complaint along with a Civil Non-Domestic Information Report. You may attach any exhibits (contract) and affidavits you like. The circuit court does not provide forms for this. Once you draft your complaint and file with the court, a summons will issue. You then serve the defendant and the litigation process begins. There are specific rules for drafting complaints such as format, headings, counts, allegations, and claims for relief. You may want to consult counsel instead of trying to do it yourself and risk harming your case from the beginning.
This is not legal advice nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. This is for education and informational purposes only. It is always recommended that you contact an attorney with any concerns as each individual case is unique.
Without legal training, or with no sample complaints setting forth the causes of action you are pursuing to use as a guide for drafting your own complaint, you may very well have your case dismissed for failing to state a claim or for other procedural defects. There are no forms in circuit court. After three years of law school, even most lawyers don't know how to properly draft a complaint. They learn under experienced lawyers, or from trial and error. This is a Q andA forum that can answer specific questions, but it cannot provide you with the help you need, other than as a means to find a lawyer who you can pay to do this for you.
