Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your brother's situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.
1. Statutes of limitation are state specific. What state was he sued in?
This needs to be placed in our Canada Law section, not the US Law section. I will opt out and ask for the question to be placed in the proper section.
I am unable to further assist you in this matter, and I am going to opt out of your question and open this up for other professionals.Your question is being placed back in the question list for other professionals to see, and to respond to. You do not have to stay online for the question to be active. Should another professional pick it up, you should be alerted by email unless you actively disable this feature.There is no need for you to reply at this time as this may "lock" your question back to me, thus inadvertently delaying other professionals' access to it.I apologize for any inconvenience and wish you well in your future.Doug
I am very sorry to hear this.
Unfortunately, the Judgment can be enforced for 10 years from the time they obtained it.
But if you are saying that they waited so that the interest would mount because they fully knew that your brother didn't understand he had to pay it then it may make sense to pay a lawyer to threaten a lawsuit.
But you would have to prove that this was deliberate.
