My client moved to San Diego from Florida last year to start her dream job.  Shortly after moving, she received notice that Citibank had sued for an unpaid debt of $15,432.35 back in 2005.  She had no idea she had been sued 11 years ago.  Citibank had somehow found out that my client had move to California and now she needed to fight a wage garnishment by Citibank in San Diego.

My client panicked.  She had JUST moved and started a new job.  Her DREAM job.  Can Citibank sue for credit card debt in California when the lawsuit originated in Florida?  It’s called a “Sister State Judgement” and it is the law that allows a creditor to domesticate a foreign (out of state) judgement on a sister state. So they sued her in Florida and obtained the judgment there and transferred it to California for enforcement of the judgment.

My client was mortified that her new employer received a wage garnishment order.  She did not want to face the embarrassment nor did she want to start off on the wrong foot with her new job.  So she contacted me for a free consultation for credit card wage garnishment and we went over her options.
