What is the debt collection process in Gambia
Each case is different and there is no time line which you can rely on.
Debtors may not always be in this jurisdiction. Therefore service can take time or result in applications for substituted service.
Settlement is to be encouraged rather than litigate. Payment plans obviously depend on the individual circumstances and agreement on the length of the repayment period.
The court procedures are slow, taking years rather than months. Cases are not listed for hearing and then proceeded to conclusion in one hearing.
Matters are adjourned part heard, often for months at a time.
Post judgment enforcement proceedings are common and unsatisfactory. Petty corruption and abuse of process is common.
Can late payment fees / interest to be added to claims?
Only if part of original agreement.
