Has your debtor fled to Nevada trying to escape your judgment?

If you debtor has relocated to Nevada trying to escape your judgment, we can help. We work with individuals and businesses from all across the United States who need to enforce out-of-state (also called foreign) judgments in Nevada.
With basic background information from you about the judgment and the debtor, we can provide a preliminary, no nonsense assessment of the debtor and the collectability of your judgment in Nevada. If you decide to proceed, we will make your out-of-state judgment enforceable in Nevada by a process known as domesticating the judgment.
DOMESTICATING A JUDGMENT IN NEVADA
While out-of-state judgments and orders must be respected by and among the several states based on the “full faith and credit” clause, each state is allowed to set forth its own rules and guidelines for domesticating a judgment. We know the necessary procedures to ensure your judgment is domesticated in Nevada properly and quickly.
After obtaining the required information from you and an exemplified copy of the judgment, we will promptly prepare and file the required documents and domesticate your judgment in Nevada. Once the judgment is domesticated, we will provide the mandatory notices to the debtor and his/her attorney when applicable.

After the mandatory waiting period expires, we will move aggressively against the debtor to collect your judgment. We will use all available post-judgment legal remedies including: locating and attaching assets, garnishing wages and income accounts, as well as executing on bank accounts and seizing other assets. In certain situations, we can also require the appearance of the judgment debtor to answer questions under oath about their property in order to speed up the collection process.
