Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
Which country is this?
Do you have any property in the UK?
They could enforce abroad but they won't.
Nothing will ever happen about this unless you come back to the UK.
Unless it is a massive amount of money this will be the last you will hear about it.
Suing cross border is really quite onerous.
Please don't worry.
Can I clarify anything for you?
They can get enforcement orders in Europe but they have to find you first.
It is quite hard to do that.
There is still a good chance in your favour.
Oh it always depends on the creditor and their views.
But most companies are unlikely to pursue you abroad for smaller sums. For 50k they might though.
No, not necessarily. It depends on the creditor.
You won’t go to prison. They are after your funds.
Unless, of course this is an order of the criminal court under the proceeds of crime act
