Collecting Out-Of-State Judgments
Some creditors go to court to secure a judgment against a debtor — only to find themselves struggling to collect on that judgment. This can be an especially difficult challenge when the creditor is in a different state — particularly when the state is Texas.
In the world of collections, a foreign judgment is a judgment from a court in another state. Some attorneys are experienced at turning foreign judgments into actual money.
