I am a business creditor located outside of the United States. How can I pursue a debtor for unpaid invoices, breach of contract, or other business/commercial claims?

You have two potential avenues available.

1. An international business creditor located outside of the United States can pursue a US debtor by filing a lawsuit in the county where the debtor has its principal place of business. Once a judgment is obtained against the debtor, a creditor can execute its judgment by pursuing assets of the debtor.

2. It may be possible for an international business creditor located outside of the United States to file legal proceedings in its home country. The home country judgment can then be domesticated in the US.

Judgments from foreign countries must meet certain guidelines to be enforceable in the US. Typically, it is necessary for the debtor to receive proper notice of the action and be afforded a fair opportunity to defend its interests. Assuming these due process requirements are satisfied, the foreign country judgment may be enforced. Once the foreign judgment is properly domesticated, recorded and docketed, a creditor can then execute its judgment by pursuing assets of the debtor.
