A debt past SOL doesn't mean you are immune from a lawsuit. Past SOL is simply your defense in court. Since you were not at the hearing, the judgment was entered by your absence...automatic default.
What is the best way to handle paying a judgement? I have never been served, or even notified of this judgement against me, just saw it on my credit report.
The OC is listed on my Credit Report, with a balance showing. I know I owe them, but I believe that the SOL to file judgement against me was up in Jan 2007. They apparently filed this judgement in May 2007, but I just now saw it on my CR.
I looked up the judgement in the Office of Public Records through my County Court's website, and it says it was filed/recorded on 4/22/08... which is probably why it's just now showing on my CR.
How should I deal with this?
