The short answer is that you need to ask a mississippi lawyer because it may be exempt from seizure under Mississippi law. As additional information, however, you should know that the Louisiana judgment cannot simply be copied and taken to Mississippi with no further action and your land seized. The creditor would have to obtain recognition of the judgment from an appropriate Mississippi court and then use the appropriate Mississippi collection procedure to seize the property to satisfy the judgment. Although there is no guarantee on this matter, many creditors will not go to the trouble of pursuing this process because of the time, trouble and expense involved in collecting on a small judgment across state lines. If, on the other hand, the creditor is spiteful or otherwise motivated, they could still pursue it. The foregoing is intended as legal information concerning the question asked, but is not intended as legal advice upon which the requesting party may rely in guiding their actions. Rather, the requesting party should consult an attorney for a personal consultation and advice for a full consideration of their situation and rendition of legal advice. Additionally, by providing this general information I am not accepting any representation of the requesting party and I am specifically declining to form an attorney-client relationship with the requesting party unless agreed to later after further consultation and agreement.

Areas of practice listed are are areas of concentration in my practice. I am not board certified in any of the listed areas, and by listing them and describing my practice I am merely describing my experience and the nature of my practice.
