Attach certificates, other documents confirming that the missing deadlines were quite respectful. This may be a certificate from a medical institution confirming your illness, in connection with which you were not able to promptly initiate a case to consider the issue of protecting your rights and legitimate interests. If you were in another city or country, obtain documentary evidence from the Federal Migration Service. When serving a sentence in a correctional labor institution or when performing compulsory or contract service in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, present a certificate.

Step 5

You have the right not to apply for the restoration of the statute of limitations, if the defendant does not object and does not mention that the statute of limitations for collection has expired. In this case, file a claim for collection.
