Q. If a bill is from 1999 and the water comp wrote it off in 2005, can they ask for payment of same bill in the yr 2018?
A: Answering your question invites a discussion of the "statute of limitations". The law encourages prompt resolution of debt issues. The longer resolution is delayed, the greater the risk of harm to either party. Tennessee has established time limits on seeking the court's help in collecting a debt. If the collection process involves using the court system, the creditor/plaintiff must file the action within the time limits in TN. If the claim is not filed within the time limites, it is deemed "unenforceable". You must raise that defense or you risk losing your defense. Good luck to you.
Q. Are you able to place a lien on a worker's compensation claim in the state of Indiana?
A: Probably not because worker's comp awards are generally protected from creditor's claims. WC awards are intended to compensate a person injured on the job and not to pay the worker's debts.
Q. How do I collect on a $25,000 promissory note with a maturity date of December 31, 2018?
A: Sue and get a judgment anyway. In CA, it is good for 10 years and can be renewed for 10 year multiples in the future. CO probably has a similar arrangement. Good luck and God bless.
