Late Payment Reminders and Execution

Information provided by the advoprax AG - Law Firm

When debtors refuse to pay and reminders are ineffective.

If you have a debtor from Germany, use this website to request our office to start a legal dunning procedure with the help of user-friendly online forms.

Using our online forms does not cost more than the normal cost of the regular dunning procedure for obtaining a court order. The costs to obtain a judicial court order must be paid in the full amount by the debtor if the following conditions are met: your claim is justified, the debtor is in default of payment and the debtor is solvent.

If the responsible court offers the so-called ”data-carrier-exchanging-procedure“, the court order will likely be received by your debtor within 3 to 5 working-days.

Click this button to go directly to our form pages. Use the online forms to request us to obtain a court order to recover one or more outstanding claims.
