Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Connecticut
If your company is holding a Judgment against a Judgment debtor who resides in or has assets in Connecticut, The Woods Law Firm, LLC can domesticate your out-of-state or international Judgment to a Connecticut Judgment, either by filing an action pursuant to the Connecticut General Statutes or applying the common law.
Depending upon the size of the Judgment, in some instances, a multifactorial approach is implemented whereby the domestication process is initiated with an Application for Pre-Judgment Remedy.
Methods to Domesticate Judgments Obtained in Another State or Country in Connecticut
In instances where the underlying out-of-state or international Judgment was obtained following a trial or other disposition on the merits, as opposed to a Judgment obtained by default or Confession of Judgment, the Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act, as codified in Connecticut General Statutes Section 52-605, provides a streamlined mechanism for obtaining a Connecticut Judgment.
If the out-of-state or international Judgment was obtained by default or Confession of Judgment, then it is still possible to domesticate the Judgment in Connecticut utilizing a common law approach (instead of a statutory approach).
If you have a Judgment against a business in Connecticut, or if a debtor-company with assets in Connecticut, The Woods Law Firm, LLC, has the experience and resources needed to promptly and efficiently domesticate the Judgment in Connecticut.
