For judicial debt recovery, we lodge the application for an order for payment:
- in accelerated proceedings—this is a type of procedure where the competent court may, but is not required to, issue an order for payment in accelerated proceedings of ten days if the applicant can sufficiently prove his or her claim. The application for an order for payment in this type of procedure is submitted on the prescribed form.
- in a fast track procedure—this is a fairly new method of debt recovery that must be initiated electronically. The District Court Banská Bystrica is the competent court for all jurisdictions. This method saves both time and money, as the court fee for an order for payment is one-half of the standard published court fees. Provided that the court fee is paid and all the procedural requirements are met, the order for payment in the fast-track procedure will be served within ten days. The defendant then has fifteen days to appeal the order or to comply and pay the amount of the claim together with interest and fees and court costs.
- or we will lodge a document setting out the particulars of the claim with the court of competent jurisdiction.
After an instrument permitting enforcement has been obtained, we will promptly assert the client’s claim in an enforcement procedure.
