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.
