Hello and thank you for allowing me to address your legal question.
Unfortunately, you will have to disclose your financial information to both the court and to the judgment creditor’s attorney. The reason you need to do that is so the attorney can attempt to satisfy the judgment with the assets that he learns about. However, if your other debts are beyond the statute of limitations, then neither this particular attorney, nor any other attorney can successfully sue you for a judgment if you invoke the statute of limitations as your defense. In other words, a creditor can sue you and win a judgment against you for an old debt unless you specifically use the statute of limitations as your defense.
If the information that I provided was helpful, please remember to ACCEPT my post as that is the only way I will receive credit and compensation for my answer. Thank you and good luck!
