A civil court judgement, in of itself, will not serve to restrict your ability to travel to or from Australia.
I assume the judgement is against you personally, and not your company.
If the judgement is for more than $5k, you could be served with Bankruptcy proceedings. If you are made Bankrupt, you would need the consent of the Trustee in Bankruptcy, with regard to travel plans.
Hi John, international bankruptcy law is very complex... to say the least... so it would depend in the first instance on the quantum of the court judgement, and whether the creditor was motivated to consider chasing you and your assets in the USA.
I will send you an offer of additional service, so we can take the discussion offline. Cheers, James
