Can A Debt Be Enforced If The Statute Of Limitations Runs Out?
If the statute of limitations has expired that means that the debt cannot be enforced by lawsuit, that does not dismiss the debt and the creditor can still leave it on the credit report for 7 years (excluding some public records, those can remain for 10 years) but legally the debtor does not have to pay it if the statute has expired. Additionally tax liens remain on credit reports for 7 years from date satisfied not filed. If they remain unpaid they can stay longer, however they are only collectable for 10 years. Keep in mind that the tolling of the time can be extended by offer and compromises and payments.
Lead Counsel independently verifies attorneys by conferring with state bar associations and conducting annual reviews to confirm that an attorney practices in their advertised practice areas and possesses a valid bar license for the appropriate jurisdictions.
