Usually, the out-of-state court can’t garnish your wages especially in Pennsylvania.

The creditor got a judgement against me and garnished my wages for mortgage debt. Now that I have shifted to PA, will the judgement also follow me here? Is out-of-state judgement transfer allowed?

But the creditor can still go after your property (if you have any left) in the state where the debt originated. One more thing is... though there is no law that can enforce the out-of-state order in PA, if your employer decides to honor the wage garnishment order, to avoid complications, he may do so.

You're at an advantage. Pennsylvania laws doesn't allow wage garnishments in the first place. And since the judgment originated in another state ( you haven't mentioned which), the out-of-state court can't garnish wages in PA.
