What happens to a debt when the debtor leaves country? Does SOL stops and starts all over again?
The SOL period doesn't stop just when you leave the country with debt. Every state has a SOL period, and that starts from the date of first default on your debt and ends after a stipulated period. For instance, in Texas, the SOL period on debt is 4 years. Once 4 years are over, creditors can't file a lawsuit against you anymore.
