I. PRESENT ATTITUDE TOWARD ENFORCEMENT OF FOREIGN MONEY JUDGMENTS
A. Describe the receptiveness of your government (including courts) toward enforcement of foreign money judgments.
Enforcement of foreign judgments generally are subject to recognition and authorization by the Supreme Court of Justice. The court would commonly proceed under the law in the ordinary course of business if conditions for recognition and enforcement were met.
B. Briefly describe recent illustrative attempts, whether successful or unsuccessful, to enforce a foreign money judgment in your country, particularly with regard to enforcement of any judgments from United States courts.
No recent publicly disclosed precedent.
C. Describe any proposed legislation or other governmental action in your country that could significantly affect the enforcement of foreign money judgments.
None. On the other hand, it is important to note that a new Code of Civil Procedure, governing amongst many other matters enforcement of foreign judgments, was enacted by means of Law No. 493 of November 19, 2013, as part of a State’s policy to modernize the legislation.
