Hello, I am Law Denning and I am a practising solicitor in a HighStreet practice. I have been an expert on this website in UK law since 2008.During that time, as you appreciate, I have answered thousands of questionsfrom satisfied users on a variety of subjects.
Because we are all in practice with clients and court and otherusers, I might not always respond inminutes, particularly evenings and weekends. Please bear with me in thatcaseIt is my pleasure to try and assist you with this today. Please bear with mewhile I gather some further information from you in order for me to be able toadvise you fully.
Unless I have all the facts that I need, my answerwould not be accurate.
All you can do is issue legalproceedings in the County Court in the UK which you can do quite easily here www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
you need to get consent toserve documents out of jurisdiction (in Germany).
The legal proceedings willtake place in the UK and he does not attend, there will be a judgement againsthim.
You are then faced withenforcing the judgement in Germany.
To be frank, as this is under£1000, it is simply not an economic proposition. He will know that if he takes advice
I'm sorry, I appreciate thatthis is not the answer you wanted but there is no point in me misleading you.Purely from a practical point of view it is not worth pursuing. Sorry
Does that answer thequestion? I am happy to answer specific points.
Can I help further?
