solved by simply sending the claim by mail to the legal address of the debtor.

When filing a law suit, you will need to pay a state fee of 1% of the amount of claims for individuals or 3% for legal entities. If in the course of legal proceedings, the parties enter into an amicable agreement, then the filing fee is returned to the plaintiff.

If the debtor's claims are indisputable, and the debtor does not declare any disagreement with the debt, then the
judge issues a court order without trial and summoning the applicant and the debtor to hear their explanations. In
this case, the plaintiff pays 50% of the state fee. After the court order the enters into force, the court can also
provide a writ of execution.

The second alternative way is to obtain an executive note from a notary. Similar to the first case, the claims of the
claimant must be indisputable. The notary sends a letter on the issuance of a writ of execution to the debtor. If the
debtor disagrees with this writ within 10 working days, the notary will not be able issue such writ. In case has
