If the debtor denies the debt or ignores the legal notice, and the creditor has sufficient evidence to support his claim, the creditor can proceed with the case.
Once the court has issued the order for payment against the debtor, the latter may file an appeal against the order for payment, if its value is within the limits of the jurisdictional amount of the courts of first instance (€12,873), within (15) fifteen days from the date of notification of the order to the debtor and from the date of notification of the decision to the creditor. The appeal shall be heard by the competent court judge.
If the value of the order exceeds the jurisdictional amount of the courts of first instance, the debtor may appeal against the order in accordance with the procedures and time limits prescribed for appeals against judgments.
If the debt has been pursued through the ordinary procedure and the court subsequently issues a decision requiring the debtor to pay the outstanding debt, the debtor retains the right to appeal in accordance with the provisions of the applicable law.
If the debtor fails to make the required payment in accordance with the court's decision, enforcement proceedings will be initiated against the debtor only if the debtor does not file an appeal or if the decision of the appellate court is issued.
