Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Did you sign personally for the debt or as an agent of the company? (i.e. ***** ***** vs. ***** *****, Vice President of ABC Corp)
Are you saying that they already sued you and got a judgment against you, or they are trying to sue you now, but a judgment hasn't been entered yet?
Did you ever receive a summons for the lawsuit to come to court?
Ok, then they kind of have you stuck here because if you signed something in 2012, they have 8 years to sue you in Ohio for breach.
However, if your only income is SS and you don't have other substantial assets, then you are essentially "judgment proof" because they can't collect on any judgment. SS and other retirement income is exempt under federal law from garnishment..
So they may just be spinning their wheels unless you have other assets like non retirement savings or assets with equity in them that they could go after..
