Good morning, and thanks for using JUST ANSWER.Regarding number one, a motion to vacate a judgment should be filed within a reasonable time after the judgment is entered. You will have to plead a very good reason for not moving against the judgment before now.. Regarding number 2, only a, (no notice) would be a valid ground. The court record would have to show the complete absence of any return of service of summons in the basic foreclosure suit that would deny the court jurisdiction and void the judgment. In my opinion that would be your only chance of vacating the judgment. Please enter a positive rating for my assistance here by clicking on 3, 4, or 5, for which there is no additional cost to you.

20 years is the statute of limitations on collection. It has nothing to do with the court case that brought about the judgment. The time for raising defenses is when the case is pending and before the judgment is entered. The court case was over a long time ago and the court will not listen to defenses at this late date.
