Re: Petition for Bill of Review

To file a petition for BoR, you must prove that you had defenses which could not have been raised at trial, i.e. that you were not served with citation or some other serious defect. You have no more than 4 years after the judgment is final to bring your BoR. The BoR may be used to attack any final judgment if the requisites are met. You would be better off with a lawyer on these kinds of matters.
