The Process Of Domesticating Judgments

The Process Of Domesticating Judgments

According to the Constitution, states have to honor the judgments of other states. It is more complex in Massachusetts, however than in other jurisdictions.

Instead of being an automatic process, creditors have to domesticate the judgment for enforcement. The key to success in this process is hiring a debt collection attorney with experience in this field.

Domesticating a judgment entails filing a new lawsuit in Massachusetts. After this, there are two options — waiting to try to collect after entry of judgment, or filing suit right away and attaching assets.

To see success, out of state creditors will require an aggressive approach to debt collection and domestication of a judgment. There is not a lot of room for waiting in this situation, which is why the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC immediately takes action, going after debtors while working to save out of state creditors from having to travel to Massachusetts.

Attorney Alan M. Cohen works quickly to investigate the debtor and determine what assets exist in Massachusetts, then prepares all of the necessary documentation to seek ex parte attachments to seize assets. Attorney Cohen does not wait passively for an entry of judgment, which means creditors stand a much better chance at seeing their owed funds.

Having an experienced collections lawyer on your side can make the difference between a slow-moving lawsuit, and a debt collection success that is as fast and painless as possible for you as the creditor. When you are owed money, you want it as soon as possible, something Attorney Alan M. Cohen understands.

Instead of trying to gently persuade debtors, Attorney Cohen uses aggressive collection tactics in all collection situations, working to leave no wiggle room for debtors to try to get out of what they owe.
