Out of State Judgments

What are out of state judgments and how can the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC help you in this area of the law?

Out of state judgments are an important part of collections law. If you live outside of Massachusetts and are trying to collect on a debtor who is in this state, you will find that you have to domesticate the judgment. While many states make it easy to collect on an out of state judgment., Massachusetts is different. It is not an automatic process in this state, meaning a creditor has to take steps to domesticate foreign judgments.

Of course, the best, and easiest way to do this is with the assistance of an experienced lawyer like Attorney Alan M. Cohen.
