"Legally enforceable" is a condition precedent for a debt being eligible for referral to the Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service) for collection action. A debt is considered legally enforceable for purposes of referral for cross-servicing if there has been a final agency determination that the debt is due and there are no legal bars to one or more of the collection actions to be taken by Fiscal Service.
