In CA, you can get a judgment amended "nunc pro tunc" by making a motion to your judge. I imagine the same procedure is available in AL.
If the defendant is a CA resident, you're going to need to "domesticate" your AL judgment in CA and then collect on it in CA, so you'll need to hire a lawyer in CA.
Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments. If you want to hire me, please contact me. Otherwise, please don't expect a further response. We need an actual written agreement to form an attorney-client relationship. I'm only licensed in CA and you shouldn't rely on this answer, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it's impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.
i agree with the other counsel.
