    BELGIUM:
    First at all we try to obtain payment out of Court by sending one or more reminders and by contacting the debtor by phone. If no recovery out of Court is possible, it will be necessary to start legal action in order to obtain an award. In general, judgments concerning non-contested or non-contestable claims, such as invoices that have not been protested, are enforceable. This implies that these judgments may be enforced even if the defendant appeals or asks for a retrial. In other words, a judgment can usually be enforced some weeks only after the initial hearing.

    ABROAD:
    First at all we try to obtain payment out of Court by sending one or more reminders and contacting the debtor by phone. If no recovery out of Court is possible, it will be necessary to start legal action in order to obtain an award. 

    As member of AEA (Association of International Lawyers) we have personal and sustained contacts with lawyers in every Country in the World. 

    If no payment can be received out of Court there are 2 options:

    - Either we will contact one of our colleagues in order to find out if itís possible and useful to obtain an award in the country of the debtor, 

    - or if this is more useful we will obtain an award in Belgium that can be enforced in the country of the debtor after its exequatur (= authorization given by a Court abroad to enforce the judgment of another country). 

    The golden rule should always be that if recovery doesnít seem possible we must cut the losses. Throwing good money after bad is always a bad idea.
