Florida has a 4 year Statute of Limitations on open-ended accounts.

A collection agency typically is barred from bringing judgment against an account that has been delinquent for more then 4 years, but if the person has made payments, legitimatized (or formally accepted) the debt, or added more to the debt, then the statute of limitations starts over.
