Business Transactions

Contracts and transactions form the foundation of business. Contracts and business transactions should be designed and drafted to establish the rights, conditions and obligations of the parties involved.

If a contract is poorly written or drafted, you or your business may suffer unintended and devastating results. Whether you have a small business or a large business, the payment of litigation costs are high. Therefore, when drafting a contract or business transaction a lawyer should always keep in mind what may happen if a dispute arises regarding the contract.

We have experience in litigating contract disputes at the Law Offices of D.Vladimirov. We have found that our business litigation practice enables us to spot many holes in a contract that could form the basis of a lawsuit should a dispute arise. Therefore, we spend a good amount of time drafting business contracts and business transactions to avoid potential downstream litigation. A contract or transaction is only as good as it is written.Business Transactions

Because there is no perfectly written contract, litigation may always result if one party doesn’t do what the contract requires. From our litigation experience, we have come to realize the importance of having satisfactory remedies outlined in a business contract. We have seen contracts written by others wherein the remedies made available in the contract were unenforceable.

For that reason, when drafting a transaction or business contract, we make every effort that should a breach of contract occur, our clients have the necessary contractual rights to recover all of their damages.Business Transactions

When drafting contracts for a new or existing business, it is necessary to predict future situations your business may encounter. Quality business contracts take into consideration a multitude of factors that may not be obvious to you as a business owner.

Whether you are opening a sole proprietorship or entering into a partnership, or embarking on a new endeavor in the course of an established business, you should seek the advice of a trained contract attorney to help you protect your rights and your business.

Business contracts in Bulgaria, like any business agreement, involve an exchange of promises that the law will enforce, or a writing which contains the principal terms to which the parties have agreed.  Business Contracts in Bulgaria

An enforceable business contract executed in a business transaction will generally include the following elements:

  • Offer – an offer by one party to do something;
  • Acceptance – one party’s agreement to the terms of the offer;
  • Consideration – right, interest, profit or benefit accruing to one party;
  • Intention to Be Legally Bound;
  • Legal Purpose – the contract must be for a legal purpose;
  • Capacity – age, mental capacity, and legal existence are all issues of capacity;
  • Mutual Assent  – a meeting of the minds or mutual agreement; and
  • Certainty of Terms – the promises of the parties must be clear.

It must be clear from the business agreement promises that each party is making.  Without some description of the terms and conditions of the parties, a court will be unable to enforce the business contract against either party.   Our Bulgarian business lawyers call this type of contract an illusory business contract. Business Contracts in Bulgaria

An illusory contract is most often between two parties whereby one party making the promise to perform is under no obligation to fulfill the promise and thus the contract is unenforceable against said party.  The terms and conditions of the business contract must be sufficiently definite to allow for the business agreement to be enforced.

Business Contracts in Bulgaria

Every written business contract in Bulgaria should describe the substantive terms of the parties’ agreement, as noted above.

In addition, there are numerous boilerplate clauses incorporated in every business contract that are equally important.

The following are a few business contract boilerplate clauses that our Bulgarian business attorneys frequently use: a business contract in Bulgaria like any agreement, is an exchange of promises that the law will enforce, or a writing which contains certain terms and conditions to which the parties have agreed.

An enforceable business contract will generally include the following elements: offer, acceptance, consideration, intent to be bound, legal purpose, capacity, mutual asset, and certainty of terms.

Child maintenance Bulgaria

A maintenance case is usually filed when two people living in the form of an actual cohabitation have a common child and are separated.

Then the child or children remain with one parent and the other either does not pay maintenance or pays it less than the needs of minors. Then, for the parent with whom the child lives, a legal interest arises in bringing a maintenance case against the other parent.

Whenever it comes to family relationships, my advice is to resolve the issue on the basis of dialogue and mutual compromise in the best interests of the child. In order for the negotiations to be successful, this should be entrusted to a family professional lawyers, the most specialized family law lawyer, to assist the parties in converging positions.

And only after all the possibilities for a peaceful and voluntary solution to the problem have been exhausted should the case be resorted to.

Child support case without marriage

In most cases, maintenance cases mainly concern children born out of wedlock. This is because a maintenance case is extremely rare in the course of the marriage, and in the case of a divorce the court is obliged to adjudicate on the issue of maintenance and in reality no other case is required.

Children born without marriage, have the same rights as those born in the marriage, and therefore entitled to alimony.

When should a maintenance case be brought?

It is not always the case that after two parents terminate an actual cohabitation, such a case is required. When both parents understand each other, do not call each other, and cover their child’s financial needs, litigation is superfluous, although in this case we personally advise the parties, given the volatility of human nature, to settle their situation after separation, at least out of court, in which they set clear boundaries on how their relationship will develop in the future.

If after separation, the other parent refuses to pay maintenance if he or she is able to do so and does not respond to attempts to resolve the issue peacefully and out of court, then without hesitation, the parent who actually took care of the minor child should bring the court with a claim for maintenance.

Any delay, hesitation or excuse on the part of this parent not to institute proceedings is against the interests of his or her child and deprives him or her of financial resources for the upbringing and upbringing of the child.

What amount of maintenance can be claimed?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions. The answer can be given only after your lawyer becomes acquainted with all the facts and circumstances, namely, what are the needs of the child, what is the value of his / her monthly maintenance, are there any specific needs such as medicines, therapies, courses, etc. n., what is the approximate financial capacity of the defendant / usually the father / to provide alimony, and what evidence does the parent have for the expenses incurred to cover the child’s needs.

One can only say for sure what is the minimum amount of child support that cannot be sued in one case – it is 25% of the minimum wage for the country, which as of 01.01.2019 is BGN 560, which makes minimum amount of BGN 140 per month.

The maximum amount in a minor’s maintenance case will depend mainly on the child’s proven needs and, to a much lesser extent, on the parent’s ability to provide. Also important here are the income of the parent, where the child lives permanently, because contrary to the widespread opinion, he is also required by law to support his child and the amount of maintenance is divided between the mother and father in a certain proportion.

Past maintenance fees

A maintenance case usually takes a certain period of time from the actual separation to the filing of the claim in court.

 In order not to violate the rights of the child, it should be brought by the parent and a claim for maintenance for a past period, covering the moment from separation to the opening of the case.

However, this period may not be longer than one year, insofar as the law expressly provides that past due maintenance may be claimed for a maximum of 12 months before the date on which the application is filed. All the expenses from the previous period cannot be searched, which is the main reason why the case should not be delayed.

What is the cost of a maintenance case?

Maintenance cases are exempt from paying a state fee for their formation. The only cost is a lawyer’s fee according Tariff. These costs are awarded to the plaintiff if the claim is upheld in full and, therefore, it is important that, in determining the claim is well prepared in the light of the evidence available .

Divorce with Bulgarian

If you are in process of divorce, but you have bought a holiday home in Bulgaria, most likely you will need to settle the ownership between yourself and your spouse.

Аccording to statistics, in recent years the number of dissolved marriages with an international element has increased, and to file for divorce with a foreigner in Bulgaria is not at all rare and exotic. What is so popular about ending an international marriage in Bulgaria?

Firstly, the cost of a lawyer’s service, which is several times cheaper than in Western European countries, for example.

Secondly, the complete lack of additional conditions that would complicate a divorce with a foreigner, such as compulsory time for the parties to live together, periods of reflection, etc.

Third is the opportunity, once you are a Bulgarian citizen, to defend your rights more successfully in your home country, as judicial chauvinism is widespread in the most rule of law countries.

Divorce with a foreigner in Bulgaria ?

It is generally always better to have a divorce in Bulgaria, for the reasons listed at the beginning of the exhibition, but there are a number of factors that can make a divorce case with a foreigner in our country more appropriate. Such a factor may be the permanent residence of the child in the territory of a foreign country, which, according to the rules of international law, makes it competent to adjudicate on matters of parental responsibility in the relevant foreign court.

Secondly, it may be the presence of property in the spousal property community regime of considerable value in the foreign country, on which the Bulgarian court, according to its territorial jurisdiction, cannot rule. To do this, and if you have reached a decision to divorce, always consult a seasoned lawyer with knowledge of international law first about breaking up marriages with an international element about where it is better for you to end the marriage.

We can assist as your divorce lawyer in assessing the market value of the property and on any consequent ownership transaction, following a divorce settlement.

In case your spouse and you own a company in Bulgaria, you might settle to transfer the shares of the Bulgarian company to either of you or to a third party.

What is the cost of a divorce with a foreigner?

If the divorce with the foreigner is by mutual agreement, then the costs are low and it depends on the complexity of the case. As a client you schuld calculate the state fees, attorneys’ fees in the minimum amount and fees for a sworn translator and possible proportional maintenance fees for the child maintenance costs.

When the divorce is a claim and the foreigner does not have an address in Bulgaria, has one abroad, or has an unknown address, the lawyer’s fee starts from the average price for such type of legal services according to the Tariff. In addition to the state fees, fees for translation of court documents in the respective language should be provided, court fees for various court certificates, as well as possibly a fee for a court order for summoning abroad.

The extra costs should include a one-instance remuneration of the Special Representative who appoints the court a sum, settled by the Bulgarian court.

It might a be straightforward process, but every case should be examined in details for complications. Our lawyers can assist with the legal matters for you in such cases.
