Debt Lawsuit Statute of Limitations

A Debt Lawsuit Statute of Limitation is the length of time someone can bring a legal suit against you. Below is a state-by-state list of Statue of Limitations.

Statute of Limititation for unpaid Credit Card bills: If you fall behind in your credit card payments, the card issuer can sue you for payment. The start date for the statute of limitations is the date of your last payment. For example, if your last payment was on January 10, 2003, and the statute of limitation in your state for credit card debt is seven years, your card issuer has until January 10, 2010 to sue you to recover the unpaid debt.

Please note: That some states consider credit card agreements to be an oral contract,other states consider it a written contract, and some states have specific laws pertaining to credit card lawsuits. If you have unpaid credit card debt and are concerned about your legal rights, a lawyer can brief you on the specific laws and Debt Lawsuit Statute of Limitation rules for your state.
