There are some factors that can expand the time, but basically, if there is a signed acknowledgemetmn or agreement, the Creditor has ten years to fiel suit. If there is no signed writing, then they have five. If you think the the Statute of Limitations may ber adefesne in your case, you need to consult directly with a civil practice attorney in your area soon. They need to have the specific facts of your matter to be able to adequately advise you

Good luck
