What are the differences between Petitions, Plaint & Written Statement?

In our legal system, as practiced in countries that follow the English models, only a few people know the application of different petitions, plaint, and suits in law.

First of all we discuss the basic concept of the Petition, Plaint and Written Statement. Then we focus on the differences among them.

A petition is an authoritative report officially mentioning a formal court request. Petitions, along with complaints, are viewed as pleadings at the beginning of a claim. A petition is fundamentally solicitation to the court.

Plaint

A plaint is eluded to as the pleadings put together by the offended party under the watchful eye of the court in a suit. The pleadings have the realities of the case & of the reason for an activity to which alleviation is looked for on account of a suit to which he believes he is entitled. A plaint is an authoritative archive that is introduced under the watchful eye of the common courts so as to get the show cause before the court of competent jurisdiction.

Suit

The suit implies a claim wherein the affected party records a suit so as to look for equity in regard to any thoughtful right or guarantee to which he is entitled. The individual who documented the suit is alluded to as the offended party and the people against whom the equivalent has been recorded are known as respondents or litigants.
