How to avoid a criminal law-related dispute?

Make sure you read the contract/agreement/ or any kind of document before signing. Do not blindly sign any paper no matter how close the opposite person might be or how trustworthy the person may be or whether you share a fiduciary relationship with the person. Always secure your rights first.

Don’t come in the words of your relatives/friends etc thinking that they would do the best for you. When it comes to signing a document, it always goes through your terms and doesn’t rely on hearsay.

Make a habit to communicate any terms or important discussions via email and don’t rely on oral or phonic talks or promises or commitments

Always have proof when you are lending money to someone in the form of a cover letter or an email. Old traditional practices of giving a simple small piece of a chit of acknowledgment will not be substantial proof in the court of law.

It’s a new era of a digital world and we need to make the most of it. Make sure to record videos as proof or click images or record calls. The courts will definitely consider these factors.

One way to avoid a criminal dispute is to negotiate the terms of the contract with your customer or supplier and record the agreement in a signed and registered agreement. Make sure that both you and the other party are aware of and agree to the terms of the contract. This will help in making it certain whether the terms you have agreed upon, have been incorporated or have not been incorporated in the contract.

It is not always possible to change and negotiate contracts every day when you are dealing with the same person every day, you can negotiate terms in an overarching agreement & then make a contract on those terms.
