The Statute of Limitations & Debt Collection

The statute of limitations is the time period set by law in which someone can sue you. In the debt collection context, a creditor or bill collector cannot sue you for payment of a debt after the applicable statute of limitations period has run. It's important to understand what the statute of limitations is in your state and for various types of debts, how you might unwittingly restart the time period to sue, and what you can do if a collector or creditor tries to sue you after the statute has run.
