Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you today. I need a little more information.

Did you obtain a court ordered judgment against couple ?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

i did but then the couple went to to the judge and waved the order, i am unable to decipher his hand writing.

Expert:  Jack R. replied 10 months ago.
if the judge vacated the order granting you payment then you cannot collect. The statute of limitation on contractual debt is 6 years. If the debt was owed in 1998 you had until 2004.

If you have a judgment on the debt the statute of limitation is 20 years and you could still collect. It would be to your advantage to find out if a judgment on the debt obligation was ever issued.


While the result may not be to you advantage. The law is what the law is. Please accept my answer with a rating of 3 or better so I may get credit for my response.
