Understanding How to Enforce INTERNATIONAL Foreign Judgments in Massachusetts

Commercial debt collection is in itself a complex legal problem. When you add the interlinked complications of enforcing international foreign judgments you may feel hopeless about the prospects of that decision for which you fought day and night in a foreign court. Don’t give up.

Massachusetts Courts’ Attitude toward INTERNATIONAL Foreign Judgment Enforcement

As a whole, the American legal system is designed to strongly protect the rights of the citizens and businesses operating in the country. The courts across the country maintain the democratic process and follow legislation passed by their respective states. When it comes to foreign judgment enforcement, Massachusetts courts allow these cases pursuant to a specific Massachusetts statute.

Must I Wait for Domestication before Attempting to Collect on My Foreign Judgment?

Many lawyers will tell you this is exactly what you need to do. They will say your – and their – part was done when you filed the domestication lawsuit in a Massachusetts court. They will tell you all you now have to do is wait for entry of judgment. Once that is done, you can go through yet another set of delays before you might get paid the monies you are owed.
