Under Texas law there is a 4 year statute of limitations for suing for breach of contract
, however, as this is your parent organization if you refuse to pay even though it may be out of the statute of limitations, they would have legal right to remove any charter
or agreement with you to be your parent organization. Thus, while they legally could not sue for anything beyond the 4 years, they could sue you for debts less than 4 years and could also refuse to allow you to keep operating under their name.
Thus, you have to either negotiate repayment with them or they could take action if these are legitimate fees that were due pursuant to your agreement with the parent organization. Even if there was poor record keeping, if these fees are due pursuant to your agreement, they will still have legal right to collect them I am afraid, so you need to make some arrangements to pay them and have some type of fundraiser or dues assessment on the members to pay the fees.
