The number of debtors who do not pay their debts is increasing. The debt recovery process in Slovakia is a difficult one, it takes time, money, and can cause some anxiety.

Call us +421 2 207 59 504 or send an email to our address office@akmv.sk. We act for clients from the Slovak republic and abroad. We speak in English and German. 

A process of the judicial and non-judicial debt recovery 

We distinguish between two ways of debt recovery. The first is the non-judicial debt recovery where we submit a final request to a debtor to pay for debts. If a debtor will not pay for it, it is a reason to start the judicial debt recovery. 

The judicial debt recovery starts with issuing a claim at the corresponding court of defendant. Under the Civil Codex the court will make an order within 10 working days if all required conditions are fulfilled. A defendant can appeal against it within 15 days since it has been received, otherwise it becomes legally enforceable. In case a defendant will appeal against an order, the court will start proceedings. The judgement of the court will be legally enforced by a bailiff.

Our services 

  • providing complex legal services and advice in relation to the debt recovery,
  • drafting suits and other legal documents,
  • acting for a client at the court,
  • communicating with corresponding courts, offices and institutions. 

Costs and fees 

The client has to pay 6% of the amount of debt as a court fee. You might get all legal costs back (it often includes a court fee and cost for legal service) if you will be successful with a case at the court. In other words, you will get your money back that you invested into the debt recovery. 

If you decide for us, you can save 50% of an administrative fee and court fee. Contact us on our address office@akmv.sk if you are interested in getting a special price list for your needs.
