Statue of limitations in Florida





Sub: Statue of limitations in Florida
Thu, 11/02/2010 14:54

I am having a hard time understanding this statue of limitations. I live in florida, and I need to know when they end. Is it at the last activity on the report or is it something else? I have several accounts that are nearing the 7 year mark but collection agencies have bought them and now I have them reporting on my report as less time than the original creditor. Can someone help?????

Sub: #2 billingWed, 12/09/2009 - 08:47



I went to DOCTOR in 1992 and he billed my medical insurance and misdiagnosed me. This was connected to a class action lawsuit that never panned out. He tried to bill me an additional $7900.00 for which I told him he collected his payment off my insurance and I didn't owe him anymore money.. Now here it is 18yrs later a collection company is calling me for this debt stating I owe him 25,000 dollars. Surely there has to be a statute of limitation on this and it sounds like a collection company that buys bad debts. What do you think?

I have 2 credit card accounts that were sold to a collection company. The collection company file a judgement in Feb. 05 and the other in June of 05. How long is this judgement good for. Also, one of the judgements garnished my checking account one time a couple of years back. these accounts have been inactive for sometime.

Sub: #5 The FTA will likely remain until you clear it up. You may be arThu, 03/15/2007 - 22:44



The FTA will likely remain until you clear it up. You may be arrested any time you're pulled over, and there is a chance that your driver's license is suspended (if it's not, I think there is a good chance that it could be later). I do not believe statutes of limitations apply to warrants--charges are already filed (SOL applies to the amount of time allowed to file charges). You need to clear this up, you risk arrest every time you are in contact with law enforcement. If it is a small matter, there is a chance that Florida won't extradite, but that will never mean that the issue is resolved. Failure to extradite just means they don't want to spend the resources to come get you. You'll have to contact the judicial system in FL to figure out how to fix this.

At any rate, this is not the forum to discuss this matter in. You've posted to a board that discusses debt, not criminal matters.

Sub: #7 "What should I do?" You can see if you are eligible for legalFri, 03/02/2007 - 13:21



"What should I do?"

You can see if you are eligible for legal aid, hire your own attorney, see if any lawyers will do pro bono work, or get assistance from a paralegal. You've posted in a FL thread, do you live in FL? Florida's SOL provides that your exit from the state stops the clock from ticking. If the SOL has definately expired, then like goudah already stated, inform the judge of that fact.

"Can they garnish my wages?"

Per state law, if a judgement is obtained.

Your credit report will not necessarily contain the info on last payments made, however, you may contact the credit reporting agencies (experian, equifax, transunion) to obtain a copy. You could try to contact the original creditor to obtain your past history. You can also try to review your old bank records.

Show up to court. If you don't a default judgement will be entered against you and it will be much harder to fight. At court, tell the judge the sol is up on this debt. If you have any records proving so take those to court with you.

How I make some extra cash

I earn at least $20 extra every month doing offers. And you don't have to pay a cent.
