Last payment on the debt is usually the date. Some of them are going to be the last time you talked with them about it. SOL's begin upon the date of last activity on the account. In most cases that will be when the creditor enters the account as a charge off, which will usually be 180 days after the account holder has defaulted. If the debtor makes a payment of any amount or in some instances agrees to make a payment the SOL will restart. The SOL will also restart if the debtor moves from his or her current state of residency to a new state.

When does the statute of limitations on a small claims debt expire in Nebraska?

According to Franklin Debt Relief: Statute of LimitationsA statute of limitations is a law that sets forth the maximum period of time, after certain events, that legal proceedings based on those events may be initiated. For debt, the statutes of limitation apply to the maximum period of time after a consumer has become delinquent on their payments. The key point to remember is that you are considered delinquent not from the date of your last payment, but rather the day after you have gone past due. In other words, if you made your last payment on 3/3/03 and your next payment was due the same day of the next month, the statute of limitations on the debt would not start running until 4/4/04. The statutes of limitations vary from state to state and depend on the type of debt and where the original transaction took place (i.e. if you took the loan out in California but currently live in Nebraska, the applicable statutes of limitations would be California's.)Oral Agreements: 4 yearsWritten Contracts: 5 yearsPromissory Notes: 5 yearsOpen Accounts (credit cards): 4 years

How to you get a credit score?

You have to have credit to have a score. If you have never had a credit account, you will need to take steps to establish credit. Good ways to start include secured credit cards, auto loans, department store cards (although I strongly recommend staying away from those). After six months, a credit score can be calculated based on your history of payment. Take care managing debt and credit. Even though derogatory information has a 7 year statute of limitations, the information does not "go away". It is still factored into credit scores.

When a collection agency buys a debt from a credit card company does a new statute of limitations start from the day it was purchased or does the collection agency's statute remain the same?

The statute of limitations starts counting immediately when you made the last payment to either the credit card company or the collection agency. If you ever make a payment to either of them the statute of limitations will start over. If you have not made any payments to the credit card company recently and the credit card company sells the debt to the collection agency, the collection agency's statute of limitations will be from the date that you last paid the credit card company. Furthermore, if the statute of limitations is over and the collection agency continues to keep collecting the debt, you can send them a letter (certified is the preferred method) to stop all contact with you. Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), they would be required to stop immediately upon receipt of the letter (unless they are taking legal action in a court then they can send you legal notices only). If they do not stop, you are entitled to collect monetary damages as outlined in the FRCA. This does not stop the collection agency from reporting to your credit report. Your credit reporting falls under a different set of rules which basically removes most collections debts (except for court judgements) after 7-10 years.
