Yes, from what I see here, that it correct. Just be sure the rule applies specifically to the court in which the judgment was filed. I only say that because NJ has different levels of civil court, and different RCP's apply to them -- of course, VA is probably not as screwed up as NJ! Anyhow, I digress... You may challenge domestication of judgment on grounds of improper service, should they bother attempting such action. You may also have open a jurisdictional question if you were not resident of VA when suit was filed that could be brought up in the Opposition to Domestication motion. If you were still in VA, there is the service issue you can raise. If you were not in VA when the suits were intiated, VA did not hold personal jurisdiction. You can raise that in the Domestication phase and could well win on that point. Just be sure you have good evidence that the service was flawed and/or that you could not be aware of the suit when it was adjudicated -- in other words, solid proof you resided elsewhere when the alleged service took place. Then, as Nascar pointed out, the judgment creditor could likely be stuck with a judgment that they cannot enforce.
