General comments regarding process in Palau for debt collection and how differs from UK debt collection and other European countries:
What is the debt collection process in Palau?
We file suit as soon as possible after I receive the referral — usually within a week. After a judgment is obtained, either by stipulation or default, the court will issue a payment order, either upon stipulation or upon motion. The order is enforceable through contempt proceedings. Most debtors do not have property amenable to a writ of execution, although that is occasionally used.
Average length of time to collect a debt?
This depends on a number of factors, the biggest one being the debtor’s ability to pay. I have cases that settle as soon as the defendant is served with process. I also have judgments that are 25 years old and that will probably never be paid in full.
Can late payment fees / interest be added to claims?
Late payment fees and pre-judgment interest are generally allowable if specifically provided for in the contract between the parties. The maximum rate enforceable in our courts is generally 12% p/a. Post-judgment interest is fixed by statute at 9% p/a.
Details on legal service / legal process in Palau
Our court rules permit service by personal service, abode service, service at the defendant’s workplace, service on any defendant in any other jurisdiction of the USA, and “longarm” service by publication on absent defendants. The Geneva Convention on service of process is applicable.
Specialist Debt Recovery Experts
There are many unique requirements to recovering international debts in all countries including Palau debt collection services which differ from the UK debt collection agency services and therefore it is very important that cases are handled directly by our expert international debt collection agencies and not from debt collectors UK. This method of international debt collection sets Creditreform aside from the competition who in many cases try and recover debts from a UK debt collector only. Using the local offices and partners enables us to achieve a far greater success rate and our No Win No Fee service together with competitive commission rates against monies recovered only ensures you get the best service.
