Hello again,

 

Depending on what type of debt caused that judgment, the limit of time to collect the debt in Kansas is 5 years (for written debts like signature loans at the bank) and only 3 years for an oral agreement to pay a debt.

its a credit card debt

Hello again,

 

Then, I believe it would be 3 years, but regardless, the time has expired in which they could collect this debt.
