Hello. Thank you for using JustAnswer.
Because he is located in Massachusetts, an Ohio court has no jurisdiction to enforce a wage garnishment order.
Instead, you have to go to the clerk of court where you case was heard and get a "certified copy of the judgment". They will know what this is, but is a seal stamped copy of the court's order ruling in your favor and ordering the other party to pay $x amount.
You then need to take that certified judgment and get it certified as a "foreign judgment" by filing it with the clerk of court for the county in which the defendant lives or the bank is located. Once you do that, then you can get a writ of execution
from the Mass. court that will allow garnishment.
There are many lawfirms in Boston that specialize in this type of action. I can provide a couple of web addresses just to show you a sampling. You can recover the attorney fees and cost of collection from the judgment debtor
