Making the other party uphold his end of the contract in France

Contractural agreements in France

If you want to have the other party fulfill his end of the contract in France, you have a simple way to do it: Orders for payment (“Injonction de Payer”) and Orders to perform (“Injonction de faire”).
In both cases, the procedure is pretty fast, and is mainly appropriate for small conflicts.

What exactly are Orders for payment and Orders to perform?

As the name implies, an Order for payment is meant to have the other party pay you, while an Order for payment makes the other party perform the service they were supposed to.
