Law/Patents - Law: Patents, Trademarks, Copyright / divort
Romanian term or phrase: cerere reconventionala
In primul rand, instanta se va pronunta cu privire la desfacerea casatorii prin divort sau nu, deci va admite sau nu actiunea. Daca admite actiunea, se va pronunta si cu privire la culpa procesuala, daca este vorba despre un alt tip de divort decat cel numit de lege prin acordul partilor. In acest sens, casatoria poate fi desfacuta din vina comuna a sotilor, din vina exclusiva a sotului parat sau din vina exclusiva a sotului reclamant-parat (daca s-a facut cerere reconventionala).

counterclaim
Explanation:
"A counterclaim is made by the defendant to a civil proceeding, in a main action against the plaintiff or against the plaintiff and other people. This claim may be an attempt to offset or reduce the amount/implications of the plaintiff's original claim against the defendant, or it may be a different claim.

For example, a bank sues a customer for an unpaid debt, while the customer counterclaims (sues back) against the bank for fraud in procuring the debt. The court will sort out the different claims in one lawsuit (unless the claims are severed)."
