State tuition fees 9 years old, time barred?
Based on the information on the credit report and the government website, the debt is settled. So, right now, both of you shouldn't do anything. If the government website has marked it cancelled. then the question of wage garnishment or tax refund interception doesn't arise.
Thanks for the reply!
Well, the student loan part is settled, but the tuition part to the university is still outstanding.
The collection letter is for a 9 year old tuition fee to a state University.
So that's where I don't know if it's better to leave it be or address it.
Okay. Now I got it. Listen, first do one thing. Ask the collection agency to validate the debt first, and that too in writing. Don't think of settling the debt before the debt is validated by the collection agency. If the debt is valid, then you can think of settling it. Don't acknowledge the debt right now.
