Thread: Summons to court after 15 years for a judgement. Indiana

    Default Summons to court after 15 years for a judgement. Indiana

    I was wondering what my rights were for a judgement thats over 15 years can this still be pursued? It is for a lease that I broke and I am not sure how to handle this situation. Is there anything I need to do to prepare for this hearing?

    The SOL on a judgment in In. is 10 years & can be renewable for another 10 years for a total of 20 years. If it's been renewed, they can still come after your non-exempt assets/income.

    Consult an attorney.
    Not everything in America is actionable in a court of law. Please remember that attorneys are in business for profit, and they get paid regardless of whether or not you win or lose.

    You're welcome - I'm glad things worked out for you. Yep, they had to renew it before the first 10 years was up.
