In accordance to the specifics of each case,
clients will have to consider the main following steps:
1. Initial Stage
Evaluation of your case to establish whether
the legal action is to be started in Romania or abroad, type of Courts, type
of trial, initial verification of the debtor (financial status, company
2. Pre-Trial Stage.
This phase includes sending a formal
notification to the debtor (in the format required by the Romanian Law),
proposing a time and date for an appointment for negotiations. The
notification as “late payer” constitutes a manifestation of the creditor’s
will through which the execution of the debtor’s obligation is requested.
Note: This step is not required if the
Summons of Payment procedure can be initiated.
3. Trial Stage
This refers to the actual trial, from the
moment the claim is filed up to the moment a final Court Decision is
obtained. Clients will have to take into account that according to the type
of trial and the amount in question, trials can have 2 additional phases of
appeal. In other words it may take up to 3 trials to have a final Court
Decision which can be subsequently enforced. This is of course if the
Romanian debtor chooses to go through all stages of the trial.
4. Enforcement of Court Decisions
Should the debtor refuse to comply with the
Court's Final Decision, the creditor is able to enforce the respective
Decision through a Romanian "Executor". Please
