Question About Jurisdiction

Recommended Posts

This summer, I'll be moving from Arkansas (3 year SOL) to Tennessee (6 year SOL). I opened my CCs while living in Arkansas.

Will I be obligated to follow the Arkansas SOL or the Tennessee SOL?

Also, how do I have to be served with process? If I've moved and left no forwarding address and am not easily found, a trial can't go forward, can it?

Thanks.

I believe that the statute of limitations applies to wherever the debt originated. However, in some states the CA's can choose either state to file suit--generally choosing the state with the longer statute of limitation. Regardless, to whether they locate you or not, they can get a default judgement against you.
