Good morning Jeff,I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.Under Puerto Rico law, a judgment issued by a court in PR is valid for 15 years, and so one issued against you would be capable of being collected on, either in PR or in the US if the judgment creditor properly domesticated the judgment in a state where you live or have property, during that 15 year period.You may reply back to me again, using the Reply to Expert link, if you have additional questions.I wish you the best in your future,Doug
Good morning Jeff,I apologize if you you are upset that I answered your question. I assure you, that had I known that you directed this question to another expert I would of course allowed them to answer it. There was no mention on the site that it was directed to anyone in particular, nor did you mention in the body of the question that it was intended for someone in particular. And neither was not asked in an already established question thread as a follow up question to which the earlier expert would have had exclusive access.I simply had no way of knowing your intent, and so as with any other open question that I am capable of answering, I answered it for you. My answer is correct based on PR law, as well as US law to the extent that I discussed each of those laws.Doug
