Default Outstanding civil judgements

I have an outstanding legal judgement against me in California, by default, incompetent attorney didn't show up at court. It was over 9 years ago. My question is will I get harassed at the border when I come back to California, I'm in Mexico now. Could they seize whatever money I have on me?

I doubt it. Law enforcement doesn't get involved in civil matters.

Depends on how much money and why you have it. But that would have nothing to do with the judgment.

And you found out about this after you left the country?

Unless it was the state suing you the civil judgment will cause no issues at all.
