Need help getting owed money from my ex partner

My ex and I are not on speaking terms anymore so he pays child support directly to SCARPA and they pay me. However, the money that he owes me from before he has not paid yet. I have the court judgement and I took him to pursuit and its been a year and NOTHING. At the moment Im really in serious financial trouble and to be honest if I have to wait for another year it will land me on pursuit too. I am not being helped by social services since what I make from the child support and job is enough to live comfortably but then I have debts from before i got the support which till now I have managed to pay little by little but now the creditors are getting restless and I am getting worried. Im looking for an appartment and cannot afford to go to pursuit. Im also currently living in shortterm rentals so really need the money. Long story short..... I want to know if it is possible to get a loan against the pursuit, or if there is an agency I can contact or even the pursuit so that I get the money (its a sizeable sum) and then they can get it when the father starts paying. I already tried intrim justitia and they told me they only deal with businesses and the number they gave me the company said they had a long waiting list. Is there any legal way to get this money faster?

Do you know why he hasnt given you the money he owes you? Maybe he can't...

He is paying child support already.

Actually its not that he cant, he just thinks its a good way to punish me. Everytime he is sent to the letters to go to pursuit to do the seise of salary he never shows up. If he cant normally he would go then they would give him something that says he has 20 years to pay me back but you can only do this if you dont have a job and no assets to declare.

Are you working?

The money he owes you won't last forever, so eventhough he owes it to you it will get used up. I don't see that as a long term solution.

Re: Can anyone recommend someone to help me out?

I have been chasing an ex sub tenant for years, for CHF 1'000 of rent he refused to pay me: everytime I make a claim at the debtors' court he stops working, and the court will not take money which puts him below the minimum existence level.

There are debt management councellors, I would think your social services would know where your nearest one is, they would give you the best advice.

You might be able to sell your "Certificate of Debt" but it brings very little money. Maybe the Office des Poursuites would have an advice center?

You can find out from social services what is the minimal existance level for your family, and then you can use the excess to pay the debts back. If you are seen as trying to pay off your debts, the creditors can do very little to force your hand.

Sbrinz already showed you the direction. Go to your local social service. They are definitely going to help you.

Yes I am working the debts that I am complaining about are the ones that I incured when we were still living together and thats what I have to pay and that is what he is taking his time paying. The social services said they cant
do anything until he actually shows up to state and prove he doesnt have the money he makes enough so I doubt he will be able to do that too. Anyway I called again today and they told me I can ask for judicial help and he will be arrested for failure to appear.
