Domestication of a Judgment in Georgia
Fortunately, Georgia will recognize judgments obtained in most other states, thanks to the Uniform Judgment Enforcement Act. Creditors don’t have to file new lawsuits when the debtor moves between states. If a debtor moves, the judgment can simply be domesticated, which means the judgment is filed in the county where the debtor resides.
