No, once the judgment is granted, it applies to you, not your county. All they need is your new address. * Perhaps. If the judgment holder wants to enforce the judgment in a method other than filing an abstract judgment against the debtor's real property then the creditor will have to file a suit in the county where the debtor resides. Judgments granted in one county or state can only be transferred to another county or state as liens against real property owned by the debtor.

How can you stop a judgment against you?

The only way to avoid having a judgment entered against you is to show up on the hearing date of the lawsuit with a valid defense.
