I. PRESENT ATTITUDE AFFECTING ENFORCEMENT
OF FOREIGN MONEY JUDGMENTS
A. Describe any identifiable attitude of your government (including
courts) toward enforcement of foreign money judgments.
The present attitude of Argentina regarding enforceability of foreign
money judgments is to enforce them provided formal requirements
imposed by local procedural codes or applicable international treaties
are met and public policy principles contemplated in the Argentine
legal system are observed.
Note: Argentina has a Federal organization whereby each province
enacts its own procedural rules or codes. Unless otherwise noted herein
below, all references to procedural rules are to the National Code of
Procedure in force in the Federal District, National Territories and
Federal Courts (“Code of Procedure”). The procedural codes of most
Provinces are similar.
B. Briefly describe recent illustrative attempts, whether
successful or unsuccessful, to enforce a foreign money
judgment in your country, particularly with regard to
enforcement of any judgments from United States courts.
Mechanisms for the enforcement of foreign judgments in Argentina
vary depending on whether a specific treaty has been entered into with
the country where the judgment was rendered.
There is no treaty between Argentina and the United States insofar
as this matter is concerned.
