General comments regarding process in Federated States of Micronesia for debt collection and how differs from UK / other European countries 

What is the debt collection process in Micronesia? 

Debt collection in the FSM is arduous and time consuming.  Those who default tend to do so on multiple accounts.  Lawsuits always become necessary to secure a creditor's position, as judgments are enforced here on a first-in-time, first-in-right basis.  So the party that sues first and obtains a judgment against a debtor gets first priority with the right to be paid first and in full before the next creditor in line gets anything.  Those who wait or fail to file often collect little or nothing. 
Even then problems almost always arise because judgment satisfaction by installment payments is the preferred and most effective collection method with some courts loath to issue and then enforce orders providing for a more drastic approach.  Once payment orders are issued debtors invariably violate them requiring more court filings seeking contempt orders that typically take 3-6 months or more to process as courts here are often slow to act, although this varies from judge to judge and state to state.  When they eventually take action to hold the debtor responsible, the debtor almost always immediately purges contempt by resuming payments for a short while after which he defaults again and the cycle repeats. 

Average length of time to collect a debt? 

The collection process can vary from months to years depending on nature of the case. 

Can late payment fees / interest to be added to claims? 

Yes, if included within the contract.
