Enforcement of foreign judgements specialists

Enforcement of foreign Judgements Due to the great amount of people that come over to Spain every year and decide to invest in the country, it is becoming increasingly common to see how Solicitors from other countries in Europe and overseas require to enforce sentences that have been passed abroad but concern people with assets in Spain.

If your debtor has left the country leaving no assets and has moved to Spain, making it impossible for you to claim for your money in your country; you can obtain the enforcement of the legal resolution in Spain. In order to enforce a foreign judgement or resolution in Spain, there must be an agreement signed between both countries, the country where the judgement is passed and Spain. Within the European Union, there is the Regulation no. 44/2001 from the Council, dated 22nd December 2000, which regulates the enforcement of foreign judgements inside the E.U. and makes it possible to undertake this procedure in a relatively easy way.

You will only need to hold the ORIGINAL resolution and its translation into Spanish, although it is advisable to obtain the certificate contained in the Annexe 5 from this Regulation too. Certain requirements must be met:
