Fremont, CA asked in Collections for California

Q: What is the process to domesticate a debt as a John Doe ? I was sued as a John Doe and won.

Since there was no case I won attorney fees and was still a John Doe. The Judgement debtor refuses to pay so I need to domesticate in a different state, but that seems difficult to do as a John Doe.

Edit- Update : 8-23-22

I received information from an attorney in Wisconsin that I need to be a "named creditor". This doesn't seem to make sense, so if anyone can provide an explanation to that. Thank you.

A: There is no reason that it would be any different as a Doe; simply go forward with domestication and collection.
