1) Yes, there are a couple of ways to do that. The easiest way is to get the lien from CA "certified" and then take it to Georgia and file it through a court there. That makes it a Georgia judgment and lien.
2) As to this one I really can't answer it because it depends on a totality of the circumstances. As a general rule you would file it where the "income" was incurred if you were living there (and they use a different standard for your residence for this purpose than most others). Since this particular income is for the sale of a house/residence then most likely it should have been paid there but there are circumstances that could change that.
