The rules and procedures applicable to protection measures in civil matters are governed by the Law on civil procedure.
The authorities in Latvia competent to order protection measures and issue certificates are district (or city) courts (Article 5411(45) of the Law on civil procedure).
The authorities competent to enforce a protection measure ordered in another Member State are district (or city) courts of the place where the decision is to be enforced or the declared place of residence of the defendant, or failing any such place, the defendant’s actual place of residence or registered office (Article 6513(1) of the Law on civil procedure).
The authorities competent to effect the adjustment of protection measures are the same district (or city) courts competent to enforce those measures (Article 6515(2) of the Law on civil procedure).
These are the district (or city) courts within whose jurisdiction the protection measure ordered by decision of a foreign court is to be enforced (Article 6443(43) of the Law on civil procedure).
