Sister State Judgments

What is a Sister
State Judgment?

A Sister State Judgment is a Judgment entered in a court that is outside of California. Out-of-State Judgments can be enforced under the California version of the Uniform Enforcement of Sister State Judgments Act.

Already Have a Sister State Judgment that Needs Collection?

If you already have a court-issued Judgment from another State that hasn’t been collected and the Debtor or the Debtor’s assets are in California, we know how to enforce that Judgment and get your money. We use all the legal remedies the law allows to collect your money. We move fast and aggressively. The procedure to enforce a Sister State Judgment is quick and easy. You don’t have to re-prove your case. We file an “authenticated” copy of the Sister State Judgment with the California court, serve a notice, and 30 days later we can start efforts at enforcement.

Greenbaum Law Group Fees for Sister State Judgment Collection

We offer a choice between contingent fees (a percentage) or hourly fees (charged by the hour). See our FAQ page on which is right for you and how to make the choice. We recover more money, more often than other attorneys or collectors. If you are a contingent fee client and we don’t recover, there is no fee. The out-of-pocket filing fees for the court enforcement documents, motions, hearings, and liens and the fee for the process servers are generally small.
