Offshore: Outside influence
As a consequence of Guernsey's legal system and separate jurisdiction, judgments obtained elsewhere are not enforceable in Guernsey as of right. In Guernsey, there are two ways in which to enforce foreign judgments. The first is enforcement pursuant to The Judgments (Reciprocal Enforcement) (Guernsey) Law 1957, and secondly under the common law. In order to make an election as to which route to follow, it is first necessary to consider the 1957 law, as it will take precedence if it applies to the judgment that is to be enforced.
