A Florida judgment is good for 20 years according to code 55.081 - it can be registered in the new state so that the court in that state can recognize it, so that the judgment creditor can seize assets in that state by placing liens, garnishing, etc.
Even though it has been reduced to a judgment, one can make a settlement on a judgment which the judgment creditor may be willing to accept.
