Enforce a Judgment in Texas

Enforce an Out-of-State Judgment in Texas

Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act

The Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act allows Texas courts to enforce a judgment from another state. As such, a final judgment from another state shall be given full faith and credit, and once properly domesticated in Texas, shall have the same effect as a Texas judgment.

A triple authenticated copy of the foreign judgment (some jurisdictions refer to this as an exemplified copy or an act of congress copy). Once you have the authenticated copy of the foreign judgment, our collection lawyers can help domesticate the judgment in Texas and advise you on Texas post-judgment collection procedures.
