Hi! LegalGems here. My goal: To Do My Best To Assist You. Please remember, I can only provide general information,as this is a public forum. Yes, you are correct in that the statute of limitations for a written contract is 6 years. Please see: http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRS/NRS-011.html#NRS011Sec190 The statute would run from the time of last payment, up until the plaintiff filed suit. Since no payments were ever made, it would be from the date the first payment became delinquent. You could request a dismissal based on the expiration of the statute of limitations; or you could, if time permits (no upcoming court dates that would result in a default judgment), contact the attorney via email/letter, attach the relevant statute, and advise them the statute of limitations has run. If they realize you are aware of this, they may agree to a dismissal with prejudice, prepare the paperwork, and then you would not have to deal with a court hearing.
