Hi, thanks for your reply. Because you already have the judgment in Mass. and you are a resident of Mass, the plaintiff would attach assets under Mass law. If you could somehow find an annuity issuer that that only has offices in NY, you may put the creditor through the extra step of having to "perfect" the judgment in NY, and NY doesexempt annuity income from execution. I have no idea how you'll find a company like that.
You're going to have a difficult time exempting assets by transferring assets to avoid collection. This is because there are laws of "fraudulent transfer". What this means is when an asset is moved or purchased just to avoid a debt, the courts allow the creditor to go after those assets in any event. But, in any event what you could do is conform your assets to the exemptions
of either state. There are too many to list, but here re the statutes of NY and Mass.
