Many judgments that were taken during and in the aftermath of the "Great Recession" (approximately December 2007 through June 2009) are now dormant under Georgia law. Most of these dormant judgments are now in the three year period when the creditor can seek to revive it.
If you are served with a petition for writ of scire facias, I strongly recommend that you have it reviewed by counsel. You have procedural and substantive rights to defend such a petition. In addition, there may be defects in the underlying judgment. That means that there may still be an opportunity for you to fight the writ and let the judgment remain dead and, therefore, uncollectable.
If you have been served with a petition for a writ of scire facias, give us a call to discuss your options.
