Article 10 - Information on competent courts or authorities

Under Article 183(13) of the Code of Civil Procedure, the authority competent to receive applications for enforcement of a written settlement resulting from mediation is:

- for court-mandated mediation – the court hearing the case;

- for out-of-court (contractual) mediation – the court that would be competent to hear the case according to general or exclusive jurisdiction, i.e. as set out in Articles 28-30 and 38-42 of the Code of Civil Procedure. This is the court with jurisdiction over the debtor’s place of residence or registered office or, for example, over the location of the real estate. In relations between parents and children, this is the court with jurisdiction over the creditor’s place of residence.
