Hello. I will help you with your questions. I have been an NYS Attorney for 26 years. Are you saying your ex-husband owes $15,000 in child support?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not child support. As part of my distributive award when we divorced, he was to pay me off in 5yr. increments. The $15,000 was to be the last and that's what he has not pd. I continually remind him of it but get no money.

No, please just tell me if there is a statute of limitations wherein if a certain amount of time passes I will not be able to get the money from him. It has been 6 yrs. now.
Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 1 year ago.
There is a 6 year statute of limitations.
Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 1 year ago.
The statute of limitations runs from the date the judgement is entered.
Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 1 year ago.
If you had an agreement, you should check to see if there is a provision to extend the payments beyond the 6 year statute of limitations.
Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 1 year ago.
I believe I am wrong. I rushed my research. I believe it is 20 years. I will let another expert help you. I apologize.
