    Default Address Verification

    My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: AL

    My legal address is in LA. Been living there over 30 years. I own my home there. This is the thing, I go back and forth to AL. I babysit my grandkids so their mother can work. I go home on weekends to LA. I got an Alabama drivers license because I drive my son's car when I am here, and his insurance covers me as long as I have a valid license. (I got my license here because my son and his wife were going to get theirs also.) I thought it would be OK. My LA. drivers had expired when Katrina hit. Now I am being sued in AL for a 6 year old debt. Did the AL drivers license mess up the SOL?
    Do I just go and get a new LA drivers license? I can prove my residence in LA. Bank accounts, utilities etc. The SOL works better in LA.

    Please give me some advice on this.

    Thanks in advance.

    Your Alabama license, and associated claim of Alabama residency, is probably sufficient to support jurisdiction over you in Alabama's courts. The statute of limitations depends upon the cause of action. If you believe it is available as a defense, raise it as an affirmative defense with your first responsive pleading. Unless this is a small amount of money and you don't mind the possibility of getting a judgment against you, you would be wise to consult a lawyer.
