    Answered . It doesn't work that way. The judgment in KY has to be registered in FL, and a FL wage garnishment order has to then be sent out - the FL employer has no legal requirement to abide by a KY judge's decision, and a KY wage garnishment has no effect in another state. You are attempting to collect in FL, and a FL order is required.
