The article presents the author’s concept of the results of the processes of specialization and
unification in civil procedural law at the elementary level. It also states that a primary
community, which includes paired procedural rules (general and special), is formed at
the lowest level of the branch system of procedural law. Paired norms are combined into
procedural complexes designed to fully regulate a separate part (stage) of procedural
relations considering atypical procedural legal situations. In terms of the content and
the structure of civil procedural law it is important to ensure a balance of processes of
specialization and unification, which minimizes their negative consequences. As a structural
element of civil procedural law procedural complexes should be adequately reflected in the
legislation through the correct formation of regulatory material. The article gives a detailed
analysis of the current civil procedural legislation (not including institutions of appeal and
review), identifies defects in the formation of regulatory material and proposals for their
elimination, shows contradictions (conflicts) of special norms, gaps (vacuums) in legal
regulation and the lack of necessary regulatory generalizations

Keywords: development of civil law; specialization of procedural law; unification of
procedural law; system of civil procedural law; procedural norms, procedural complexes.
