If the person paying moves to Spain, in accordance with the rules established between EU countries, the judgement may be enforced from Spain, it will not be necessary to revert to the German Courts.

The same goes for recovering debts in Spain, or from another EU country. There are many reasons why a client may need to enforce judgements from Spain.
