(Chapter 28, Article 1, Title 34 of the Indiana Code.)
A debtor and his creditor may also, by agreement, submit any matter of controversy between them, to any court which has jurisdiction over the matter, an agreed statement of facts signed by both parties, and appear by affidavit that the controversy is real, for a determination by the Court. A judgment entered under this procedure may be enforced in the same manner as if it had been rendered in an action. (Chapter 29, Article 1, Title 34 of the Indiana Code.)
