North Carolina Tolling Provisions as It Relates to CC Debt

Recommended Posts

I heard that North Carolina prohibits debt collectors from using the tolling provision to stop or pause the statute of limitations on personal credit card debt.  In other words, the statute of limitations runs as if I never left the state of NC (I left the country for some time).  Is this true, false or partly true?  Please elaborate.

Being out of the country is the ONE thing that will toll the statute of limitations because you are outside the jurisdiction of the court.  If you were simply out of the state temporarily for work i.e. a month they could do alternative service where you are temporarily located.  Out of the country means you are not under the jurisdiction of the US at all.
