Jazzy4136, for the state of PA the 4 year SOL would apply for any action upon a judgment or decree of any court of the United States or any other state. (for the purposes of PA)

JCEMT,
Are you a debt counselor? Are you sure about this 4 year SOL on collecting a judgement?

So if a judgement was filed in 2001 in PA, the SOL is 4 years and has expired. Is it true that the debt collector can no longer take action to force collection of the debt? If the judgement was renew, would I have received notification? I haven't received any notification since the original judgement in 2001.

Does anyone know if you are notified if a judgment is renewed?

You'll probably have to dig it up but it should be in the link I posted. Generally they have a small window of time to renew the judgement and you should be notified. Hit the county court web site or go down to the courthouse yourself and pull the file.

I'm sorry...the PA RCP and Statutes are very difficult to go thru so i haven't been able to find that info. Hopefully some one more versed in PA law will jump in.
