The debt collection agency or a law firm in Montenegro
will assist the creditor in its attempt to recover the debt in three stages: the pre-trial proceedings, the representation during trial and the post-trial proceedings.
In the first phase the debt is tried to be recovered through an amicable procedure by contacting the creditor and establishing a term the debt will be paid and the conditions of payment. This is the pre-trial process. If the creditor agrees with this, the payment can be made through installments or a small amount can be paid instead of the initial amount if the payment is made urgently.

The request send to the court must be accompanied by the object of the trial such a list with all the overdue invoices, a proof that the debtor hasn’t pay it, a list with the shipping documents and the proof that those invoice were delivered to the debtor on time.
In certain cases, if there is evidence that the debtor confirmed that the payment will be made but that is not happening, that must also be delivered to the Court.
In the beginning of the process, the creditor will have to pay the court fees but if the decision is in his favor, than the debtor will be summoned to pay all the expanses encountered during the process. If the decision is in the favor of the creditor, than the debt collection agency or the law firm can help in the process of enforcement.
