Is there a statue of limitations on bring a lawsuit for collection of balance due to a university. No loan involved just outstanding balance. If so, when does the clock start ticking on bring the suit?
Thanks

statute of limitations in Massachusetts
by: Gerri

My understanding is that the statute of limitations for most types of consumer debts in Massachusetts is six years. Typically that starts with the date the payment should have been made but wasn't.

However, student loans do not have a statue of limitations. I understand that this is not a student loan, however, I don't know if it is treated differently because of the type of debt that it is.

I would encourage you to consult with an attorney to find out the specifics for this particular debt. If you are sure who to talk with you can always set up a free consultation with a bankruptcy attorney who can help you understand your options for dealing with this debt.

I hope this helps!

Its funny there is a statute on such cases as criminal. For example if I was molested when I was a kid their is statute of limitations.

But on stupid student loans their isnt' any? That makes sense
