An area of special emphasis for our firm is the domestication and collection of foreign judgments (also referred to as out-of-state or sister state judgments) in Florida. Pursuant to the Florida Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act, we have successfully enforced countless judgments obtained throughout the United States. We would appreciate the opportunity to show you how we can legally force your judgment debtor to post a bond here in Florida for the amount of your judgment plus interest if the judgment debtor seeks to stay the execution of your judgment in Florida. The bond will then provide you with a source of monies to pay your judgment. We always seek to create the maximum amount of leverage for you to be paid on your judgment and will use all available means to pursue the assets of the judgment debtor. Should your judgment be challenged by the debtor in Florida, we have the experience to represent you through trial and the appellate process. See, for example, reported Florida Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act cases: Credit Counseling Foundation, Inc. v. Hylkema, 958 So.2d 1059 (Fla. 4th DCA 2007); and Turner v. Temple, 625 So.2d 101 (Fla. 2d DCA 1993).
