  • Judgement in Nevada against someone who used to reside in Nevada


    If one were to obtain a judgement in Nevada against someone who used to reside in Nevada but during the time of the claim being heard in a NV court, now moved to and resides in New York, is the judgement enforceable in NY? Can a lien be placed on the person's real estate or wages garnished?

    Yes it can but it requires just a little extra effort and work.
    A judgment rendered in a "sister" state or a territory of the U.S. is also referred to as a "foreign judgment". 48 states, the District of Columbia, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands have adopted the Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act (UEFJA), 13 U.L.A. 261 (1986), which requires the states and the territories to give effect to the judgments of other states and territories, if an exemplified copy of the foreign judgment is registered with the clerk of a court of competent jurisdiction along with an affidavit stating certain things. The only U.S. states which have not adopted the Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act are California and Vermont. And those states have similar procedures as well to enforce judgments from other US states.

      Eventually you can enforce it in the other state. It isn't always 100% fast and easy like it's supposed to be.

        Do you already have a judgment in Nevada?

        If not, and the other person resides in NY, you will have to sue in NY.

          There is a saying, that obtaining a judgment is much easier than collecting it. You should consider whether it will ever be collectable.
          Due to a recent promotion, I should now be referred to as Major Obvious.

          I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.

          Some days it is just not worth chewing through the restraints to face life.

            That's especially true with debtors that have no assets.

              You can enforce the judgment for many years, so even if it's not collectible now, times do change and the deadbeat may get a job and family at some point.
