Abstract

Legal Assistance is the assurance of efficiency in the form of procedural developments by the state authorities, respectively, the state that implements the procedural actions at the request of the other state pursuing civil proceedings with a foreign element.

By providing international legal assistance, states contribute to a stable, democratic area and sustainable development in the commitment to share achievements in conducting procedural actions across borders.

The objective of the paper is to reflect the progress of the state conducting the requesting state procedure as well as to try to improve and promote cross-border judicial cooperation in the beneficiary countries to investigate and prosecute cross-border crime.

Regarding to this paper will also reach the initial delays in cross-border cooperation with practical examples, the time element and the international element.

The main advantage of international legal assistance is the opportunity and ability to share information, the rules of use and exchange of information and evidence through formal requirements, and why not and an ongoing avant-garde communication between relevant institutions or bodies. (Using technology platforms, greater collaboration between countries takes place. Through different real-time communication applications, information is obtained, which although may be in different countries, provides the same quality of service between organs. One thing such will undoubtedly increase confidence in institutions, procedure processes and parties wherever they are)
