The legal success is crowned by the winning verdict. However, the economic success is only brought about by the implementation of this judgment. If your debtors are not able to pay or pay for the claims they claim, the enforcement of their legal claims will be necessary. For this purpose, the enforcement is enforced, that is, the compulsory enforcement of the judicial decision.

The enforcement execution is determined by the nature of the claim to be enforced. To this extent, the enforcement may be initiated on account of a cash claim, the surrender of property or the taking of an action.

For example, the commissioning of a bailiff who pledges movable property to the debtor and, if he does not find it, takes the debtor the so-called oath-based insurance of
his entire property. This may prevent the borrower from making future commitments as a Schufa entry occurs. In addition, all accounts or depots of the borrower can be blocked. This requires a so-called attachment and transfer decision.

In the enforcement of an act, such as the issue of a work certificate, such a person may be compelled by compulsory money, up to the imposition of an obligation on the debtor.
