Lukashenko approved amendments to agreement with Russia on enforcing alimony court orders

The President of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko, signed Decree No. 385, by which he approved – as a basis for negotiations – the draft protocol on amending the Belarusian-Russian agreement on the procedure for mutual execution of court decisions in cases of alimony collection dated March 3rd, 2015 – as reported by the Belarusian leader’s press service

This international document envisages the possibility of sending enforcement documents by collectors and enforcement authorities to the authorised body of the agreement’s other party if information about the debtor’s employment is available.

It also provides for further execution of the writ of enforcement received by the authorised body in the event of a change of the organisation or other person paying income to the debtor.

The Justice Ministry is authorised to conduct talks and sign a protocol upon reaching an agreement within the approved draft.
