Who Can Benefit from this Service?

Who Can Benefit from this Service?


To enforce a foreign court judgment in Turkey, several requirements must be met, including:

  • Reciprocity Principle: There must be a reciprocal agreement or legal provision between Turkey and the country where the judgment was issued, allowing for the enforcement of Turkish judgments in that country and vice versa​​.
  • Absence of Exclusive Jurisdiction: The judgment must not fall under the exclusive jurisdiction of Turkish courts​​.
  • Public Order Compliance: The judgment must not be explicitly contrary to Turkish public order and moral values​​.
  • Right to a Fair Trial: The defendant must have been given proper notice of the proceedings and an opportunity to defend themselves​​.
  • Final and Binding Judgment: The judgment must be final and binding as per the laws of the country where it was issued​​​​.

Process: Our Approach

  1. Initial Assessment: Review the foreign judgment and the circumstances surrounding the case to ensure compliance with Turkish requirements for recognition and enforcement.
  2. Preparation of Documentation: Collect and prepare necessary documents, including the original judgment and a certified translation into Turkish.
  3. Filing the Application: Submit the application for enforcement to the competent Turkish court, typically the Civil Court of First Instance.
