Re: Statute of Limitations on Judgement in Wi from 1995 Vacateable
I haven't checked the actual statutes. Several sites I have found did list the SoL at 20 years. That appeared to be the set time limit and it not the result of having to renew the judgment at some time.
do you have a reason it should be vacated?
2. Difficulties involved in trying to get it vacated?
a bench warrant? For what? courts don't issue arrest warrants for failing to pay a civil judgment. I think there is something else going on that you really need to investigate.
Found out this week I have a judgment from 1995 and a bench warrant had been issued
that makes absolutely no sense. If a judgment is valid for 20 years, that would mean it is good until 2015. Just because it is from 1995 give you no justification to not pay it. and if there is a bench warrant associated with this, you can claim you aren't going to pay it all you want. Setting in jail might change your mind.
. I have no intention of paying it because it is from 1995.
Never received the information etc etc etc. basic FDCPA stuf
there is no requirement you recieve the "basic FDCPA stuff". The only thing that matters is if you were served according to the law or not. You would have to investigate the file on the case to determine if that happened or not.
