Decision in a civil case

A decision in a civil case is issued either immediately after the hearing or later at the registry of the court, in which event the parties can read the decision there. The decision is called a judgment or a decision. The decision is delivered to the parties upon request, for example by email.

A person who is dissatisfied with the decision may appeal against it to a court of appeal in accordance with the appeal instructions appended to the decision.

If the decision is not appealed against within the specified time limit, it becomes final.

The district court is not responsible for the enforcement of the judgment, but the party concerned must contact the opposing party or the enforcement authorities himself or herself.
