Debt collection procedure
As part of the debt recovery procedure there are two major phases to it:
- Extrajudicial procedure
- Judicial debt collection
● Extrajudicial procedure
In the former procedure, the debtor is approached without the intervention of a court. If he still does not pay the case is then taken to court which leads us to our second phase.
There are several steps involved to go about the extrajudicial procedure. Writing letters and phone calls is the most rudimentary of these steps. This is as simple as it sounds. Just by contacting the debtor, we request him to pay all your money along with interests and costs.
Once this is done by your lawyer he will proceed to make arrangements for the outstanding payment from your debtor. Having a lawyer that is accustomed to Italian negotiation techniques and speaks fluent Italian is very much advisable. Once the debtor agrees with the arrangement he is In fact acknowledging that he is indebted which is very helpful if he backs out later. So the arrangement does not leave a loophole.
● Judicial procedure
The next step is the announcement of legal proceedings. Don’t get overwhelmed by the word legal it is not as complicated as it sounds. This announcement is made in case the debtor refuses to pay. This is a kind of warning and usually works well in Italy. In these proceedings, you further have two options: order for payment and ordinary civil proceedings. Sounds difficult? Well, we know what is going on just have some faith.
Order for payment involves a provisionally enforceable judgment by the court which tells the debtor to pay within 40 day period. If the debtor brings forward his defense instead of paying we would naturally resort to civil proceedings.
Why not common civil proceedings?
In civil proceedings, if a debtor chooses to dispute your claim ordinary civil proceedings can occur. These proceedings are hard as they require witnesses, hearings, and a lot of time. It also requires justification of the claim with testimony which makes things further complicated. But our lawyers will try everything to save your time and money and in case of no win, there is no fee.
Two other procedures are acceptable as international laws. These are the European Payment Order Procedure and the Small Claims Procedure. The small claims procedure is better suited for small claims for instance up to €5,000. The European Payment Order is only applied in the case of undisputed claims.
