Call a LOCAL attorney for state specific advice. Check at your local courthouse for the judgments records.

If there is a judgment you have already lost in court. There is no statute of limitations.

Yes, but the creditor would have to sue in the debtor's state court in the county where the debtor resides and if awarded a judgment execute the writ under the laws of Massachusetts not Oklahoma. If the judgment creditor already holds a writ of judgment in Oklahoma they can file it as an abstract judgment against the debtor's real property without the necessity of court procedure.

Not if you go to court! They cannot garnish your wages without going to court to get a judgment. If you fail to show up in court and simply tell the court that the debt is outside the statute of limitations, then you may have a judgment against you. And yes they can garnish your wages if a judgment has already been awarded. So go to court if it goes that far and immediately ask that the case be dismissed based on the statute.

If the judgment debtor is already in bankruptcy, there is nothing you can do. If the judgment is for a debt for which discharge is not allowed, it survives the bankruptcy. If no bankruptcy has been filed, you can try to attach or levy on some property of the debtor that has some value, or equity.
