Recognition and enforcement, which is one of the legal terms, is regulated in International Private and Civil Procedure Law. The point of this regulation is how the decision given by the Foreign Court will be valid in the Turkish Courts. In other words, foreign court’s claims feature has importance on the nature of the decision, its recognition, or its enforcement. Therefore, the terms of recognition and enforcement need to be clarified;
Recognition Lawsuit: The foreign court accepts the final ruling force judgement in a foreign country.
Enforcement Lawsuit: To foreign court decision put into execution in Turkey, enforcement decision is needed.
