For Europe-amounts under 2000 EUR Mar 9, 2010

For Europe there has been made a new law to make it easier to collect your small debt as a freelancer:
European small claims procedure:
http://europa.eu/legislation_summaries/consumers/protection_of_consumers/l16028_en.htm

SUMMARY
The European Small Claims Procedure established by this Regulation is intended to improve access to justice by simplifying cross-border small claims litigation in civil and commercial matters and reducing costs. "Small claims" are cases concerning sums under EUR 2 000, excluding interest, expenses and disbursements (at the time when the claim form is received by the competent court). Judgments delivered under this procedure are recognised and enforceable in the other Member States without the need for a declaration of enforceability. The procedure is optional, offered as an alternative to the possibilities existing under the national laws of the Member States. It will be applicable from 1 January 2009 in all EU Member States except Denmark.
