It cannot be handled by mail and there are no forms that you can use to do it (sorry). You either have to go there and file a court case for enforcement of judgment yourself or you have to hire an attorney who practices in xxx to sign the case up in the local county court for the enforcement of the judgment. You can find an attorney in that jurisdiction by contacting the local county bar association and asking for a referral to several attorneys in that area who can assist you with this. The local xxx bar association is online. - I wish that the process could be simpler, but it is not.
