Attorney Referrals In Domestication Of Foreign Judgment Cases
After the long and painstaking process of obtaining a judgment against a defendant, you now realize that the defendant has moved to Florida and it may become difficult or impossible to collect on that judgment. Fortunately, there is a process to register out-of-state judgments in Florida.
Collecting foreign judgments – that is, judgments in other states – is more complicated and time-consuming than many people realize.
Attorneys who are representing clients in one state and trying to collect a judgment in another state on their behalf understand these complexities.
For attorneys working with clients outside of Florida who are seeking to collect a judgment in Florida, it may be beneficial to work with a local attorney who handles domestication cases in Florida.

At Korshak & Associates, P.A., we work with attorneys around the country who are looking for a local attorney to help collect on a foreign judgment in Florida.

Search For Assets
Part of the work we do on behalf of out-of-state attorneys includes discovery of assets in Florida. Determining what assets an individual has is a critical step after completing the domestication process.
Some publicly registered assets like automobiles and real estate can be located promptly. We also work to identify other assets through the courts’ discovery processes. When needed, we assist in locating the person or organization that owes money.
Once a judgment is registered in Florida, it can be enforced as if it were originally a Florida judgment. Additionally, in many cases the judgment can be used to place a lien on an individual’s real estate or personal property.
