Did you uphold your end of the contract?

When you signed the contract, you had high hopes for the business partnership moving forward, knowing that it could benefit both of you. When the other party breached the contract, you saw all of those dreams fall apart in a hurry. Now you're wondering what you can do to make things right.

The first thing you need to ask yourself is whether or not you upheld your end of the contract. Remember, that is required for you to make a valid claim.

For instance, perhaps the contract stated that you would make an advance payment of a specific amount. After that, the other party would deliver a specific amount of products on a set date. You cannot fail to pay the full amount and then sue the other person for breach of contract when they don't make the delivery on time. You have to take care of everything that you're required to do. If they fail to hold up their end of the deal anyway, that is when you have the legal high ground.

Remember that miscommunication can lead to simple mistakes. Maybe you thought you were supposed to pay after the delivery, for instance, and they thought you were supposed to pay upfront. This can leave both of you feeling like the other party violated your rights and broke the contract when you both actually did want to work together properly. One of you just had a mistaken idea of what that meant.

If you find yourself in a contract dispute for any reason, make sure you know what legal options you have.
