Here they are preparing to record this s a foreign judgment in Florida once the Maryland Court issues the certified judgment.They can then file it as foreign judgement and try to enforce in Florida.

What can they do to enforce it? They did nothing in Maryland and this is from 2011?

They can garnish wages in Florida , seek sale of anything not exempt. The can garnish bank accounts.These kinds of things.Doesn't matter if it is 5 years old if they renewed it.You can file Chapter 7 here to discharge it in bankruptcy.
