How to Collect Judgments in Florida from Another State
When you are awarded a judgment against someone who then moves to another the state, the steps to collect on that judgement can get complicated. At this point, collecting on your judgement often requires the involvement of an out-of-state collections attorney.
Collecting an out-of-state judgment is known as a domestication of foreign judgment — foreign, in this case, referring to outside of a U.S. state, rather than a foreign country. It can be difficult just to locate the person or organization that owes you money even if everyone involved is still in the same state. When the debtor moves out of state, or if you move out of state yourself, the process becomes all the more convoluted.
At Korshak & Associates, our lawyers are adept at collecting judgments when one of the parties involved lives in Florida and the other does not. One of the strategies that we employ which many other firms do not implement is an “asset search.” Finding out what assets the debtor holds in Florida can greatly increase the likelihood of collecting on a judgement.
