Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you, please give me a moment to review and possibly research answers to your question.
Yes, all one has to do is domesticate the judgment in PA and then seek wage garnishment there. There will certainly be some delays in that happening but yes, it can be done.
Does that answer your question?
Yes it doesn't matter that it is a default judgment. The fact that it is a default judgment just means that you may have cause to go back to that state and have the judgment set aside.
What would you like reference to? The rule that says a foreign judgment can be domesticated in PA?
Alright, well this statute enables the domestication of foreign judgments in PA:
However, I am glad that you asked for a reference. There is actually no wage garnishment in PA allowed except for landlord/tenant claims and child support, tax claims along with a couple other narrow exceptions. Sorry about that, PA is rare in that sense and I did recall that from prior research but it slipped my mind in responding as I don't often get PA requests on that issue.
If you are concerned the judgment could qualify for wage garnishment I can get you the list of debts that are allowed to wage garnish but if it is for a credit card or some other debt then they cannot.
They can however garnish bank accounts.
