1. Introduction
Subjects of law such as natural and legal persons enter into legal-civil
relationships and into other relationships, stipulated by legal provisions. Subjective
law gives to a person a certain number of authorizations in order to protect his
rights recognized by applicable laws. In this regard, also the procedure civil law is
part of a state law or a society, which includes all rules through which subjects of
law may protect and exercise their rights when considering that they have been
violated in different civil law relations. Civil procedure presents a formal and strict
way through which is achieved the implementation of substantive law in a concrete
situation of civil-legal character. Unlike substantive law, the civil proceedings
norms, and those regulating contested procedure, have a mandatory legal character
(ius cogens).
Civil procedure legislation of Kosovo determines the legal remedies of
appealing the second instance court decisions (Court of Appeal), which have
become final, against which the parties are entitled to submit the legal remedy in
order to request from the court the annulment respectively to change the decision.
