Our Relentless Massachusetts Collection Attorneys Know How to Collect Foreign Judgments

Foreign judgments coming from sister states are entitled to ‘full faith and credit’ in the United States. However, being one of the states that hasn’t adopted the Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act, Massachusetts has a completely different process. Here, the judgment has to be domesticated and enforced by a local court before you can collect upon it. This is one of the primary reasons why an experienced debt collection attorney can make a lot of difference for you.   

Our Experienced Collections Attorneys know How to Enforce Foreign Judgment in Massachusetts

When a judgment passed in another state has to be enforced in Massachusetts, the process involves filing a separate claim. Once the court approves the domestication of the foreign judgment, the next step is to obtain an execution order. Most debtors do not oblige to court orders and pay their debts easily.

Our team at the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC has two of the best collection attorneys in the state. This is not only because of the experience that they have but also because they have the knowledge and resources to go the extra mile for you and help you collect your debt.
