Non-German civil court decisions for money

Creditors are familiar with the legal system in their home countries. Therefore they mostly initiate legal actions in their home states and subsequently there occurs a necessity for execution of a final court decision in the home state of the debtor.

If you have obtained a judgment or court order outside Germany, you may wish to enforce it in Germany because your debtor has assets there or is located there.

Requirements for the respective legal procedures are coming from International Treaties as well as from the European Union Directives or Regulations.

Differnt legal conditions depending on the origin of the decision

Methods of enforcing a judgment depend largely on the country or state of its origin and the nature of the judgment or order.

Decisions from civil courts coming from outside Germany are legally treated in a differnt way depending of the origin of the decisions. The respective countries can be split into the following categories:

  • Countries having signed the Brussels Regulation or the Lugano Convention are treated in preferred way with facitilitated conditions,
  • Countries where the European Enforcement Order (EEO) Regulation applies are also treated in preferred way with facitilitated conditions,
  • Countries with which Germany has bilateral enforcement conventions and treaties in place,
  • Countries for which none of the above apply - especially the United States of America, Japan and China.
