Court rules in favour of man who was four days late in paying alimony

The Constitutional Court has ruled in favour of a man who has been fined hundreds of thousands of crowns for being four days late in paying alimony. The man’s ex-wife filed a complaint the day after the payment was due and his case was handed to a bailiff even though the payment was by then settled. The man has now been asked to pay the costs relating to bailiff services. The Constitutional Court ruled that the bailiff had no right to demand money for any services other than certifiable expenditures and sent the case back to the regional court.
