Hello and thank you for your question here today.
In order for the creditor to try to collect the judgment against you in PA they will first have to turn the NY judgment into a PA judgment.
This is not a hard process, but it is something they will have to do in order to go after your assets in PA.
Now as to your question about rules of exclusion, I think you meant exemptions. Exemptions are what protects your property from creditors.
In your case since you are living in PA, the PA laws are going to apply.
It does not matter where the debt originated or where the judgment was entered. What matters is the state that you are living in.
