Once you have obtained a final judgment of divorce or a final judgment of paternity in one state, you may decide to move to another state, such as Florida. Enforcing a final judgment is already difficult when you are living within the jurisdiction where the judgment was entered; it becomes even more difficult to enforce a judgment once you move to another jurisdiction. Under the Florida Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act, Florida allows parties to use local courts to enforce final judgments from another state, this process is known as “domesticating your judgment.” This is not a vehicle to modify your judgment, just to enforce the judgment, this gets confused quite often. Schwam-Wilcox & Associates has significant experience in domesticating and enforcing foreign judgments in Florida.
