How long can a collection agency attempt to collect a debt? Is there a time limit or statute?
After seven years, if a payment has not been made on a student loan can the creditor or collection agent still try to collect payment on the loan?
How many years back can a collection agency go to collect a debt? I have one from 1999 that my ex-wife and I have that was not paid. I am getting letters and calls from them, and they are telling me that they can still take my wages thru a garnishment. My wife was to pay this when we divorced. I make more money than her so they said they are going after me. Can they do this?
