Legal framework and procedure to exercise child support recovery by enforcement

Keywords: enforcement proceedings, child support, recovery, enforcement, execution document, a bailiff, seizure of property

In the article the author examines legal regulation of enforcement proceedings on child support recovery and analyzes voluntary and compulsory order for using compulsory execution measures by a judicial bailiff-executor of executive documents for alimony obligations, as well as summarizes the position of the Federal bailiff service of the Russian Federation on executing the requirements of executive documents on alimony recovery during 9 months of 2016. Enforcement proceedings take place on the basis of an executive document, subject to immediate execution. Law enforcement practice shows that debtors prefer to execute the executive document in full without alienation of their property as a result of seizure of their property and its subsequent evaluation and sale. The author comes to the conclusion that the most productive approach is that of using preventive enforcement actions that ensure savings of executive proceedings as well.
