Enforcing Out-Of-State Judgments in California
A judgment entered in any state can be enforced in Orange County or anywhere in California. In other words, the creditor can use an out-of-state judgment to collect from the debtor’s assets located in California, in exactly the same manner as a judgment originally entered in California. For example, suppose the creditor obtained judgment in New York and the debtor owns real property in California. By complying with the Sister State Money-Judgments Act, the creditor can turn the New York judgment into a California judgment, then pursue the debtor’s real property in California.
