Yes, this is possible, but you need to evaluate the real chances in your case. In order for a decision of a foreign court to work in Belarus, a foreign court must consider the case without violations. For more information on your case, write or call me and we will discuss it at the consultation.

In addition to the amount of the principal debt, you can collect additional interest, penalties, penalties, as well as the cost of state duty and attorney services.
