10 years before hearing anything

by Signee
(Sacramento, California)

My husband hasn't lived in Maryland since the year 2000 but just got a letter from MVA saying he owes $5000 for lapsed auto insurance. This is the first time we've heard of this. It's been almost 12 years, and they never mentioned this before.

Isn't there a stature of limitations for this kind of thing or can he be forced to pay it although we can't afford to cause we live on a fixed income? We live in California now.

We are sorry, but we don't know the answer to your question about the statute of limitations on this. We are going to have to recommend you consult with a consumer law attorney on this.
