    Default Recording a Judgement in County Court

    My question involves judgment recovery in the State of: Pennsylvania

    I recently won a small claims case ($9,000+) in local District Court. I know it needs to be recorded in County court.

    Years ago involving another case, I hired a lawyer for $750 and found this in County public access records:

    Case Type CERTIFICATION OF JUDGMENT FROM DISTRICT JUSTICE OF THE PEACE. ASSUMPSIT EO DIE JUDGMENT ENTERED IN THE SUM OF $7,808.34 AGNST DEFT 19.75PD

    Is this the only form I need to file for the most recent case (+ the certified copy of judgment from the District Justice) ?

    NOTICE OF FILING JUDGMENT - http://www.buckscounty.org/docs/row-...t.pdf?sfvrsn=2

    Is it that simple?

    Thank you for your help.

    I haven't ever tried to transfer a district court judgment to the court of common pleas in Bucks County, but that sort of thing is VERY common. Most court clerks are willing to help a pro se do something that is really common (like they might tell you what forms you need to file). I would call them and ask them. It's not clear to me if you need to do one or the other or both of the following:

    Oh... I wasn't even thinking about a "transfer" - thank you.

    Am I correct in assuming that the district court judgment must be transferred to the court of common pleas in Bucks County before I can attempt collection (via legal enforcement)?
