The request and the declaration to the registry   consist in submitting a request to the secretariat of the court to be seized. The registry is then responsible for summoning the parties. The request is generally used to refer the matter to the family court judge. As for the declaration to the registry, it is possible in particular before the district court.

Civil Procedure

Document initiating proceedings, when the law does not require that the court be seized by an act of bailiff . This is the case with requests brought before certain specialized courts, in particular the Labor Court .

The seizure by way of request is also used to request from the President of the competent court, the authorization to proceed to a finding , to seizure or to the notification of an order issuing an injunction to pay or to do .

The petition is also the means to introduce a petition for grace or a joint petition .
