Generally the rule is where they sue. Georgia has fairly short SOL's, but will honor those of other states when a judgment has been entered from that state. If they sue in Georgia, they have to follow Georgia law. Many contracts have a jurisdiction clause, so they might try to sue you out of state. It depends where the courts are most beneficial. How old is the debt? Is there a contract? In Georgia, SOL is four years if no contract (like on an account), six years on a contract (notes, etc.) and :shock: twenty years if you signed under seal. While they may be able to beat the statute of limitations, there are a lot of affirmative defense available to you. Let me know if this answers your questions.
