Credit Card debt is considered an Open Line of Credit. The Statute of Limitations for collection in Indiana is 6 years. That is measured from the last use or payment.

It can cause the statute of limitations to start over, or at least toll. It will depend on the law in the jurisdiction and how it is written.

North Carolina has set the statute of limitations for an open ended account at 3 years. A credit card is an open ended account. That will be measured from the last communications from the debtor.

Indiana's statute of limitations for medical malpractice laws are pretty harsh in comparison with other states.

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.

Charges cannot be filed once the statute of limitations has passed. There may be ways of tolling the start of the time.

Statute of limitations laws vary by state. The clock doesn't start until authorities are aware of the crime. In other words, if a body is buried illegally, no statute of limitations would come into play until the body was discovered. After the discovery of the body, local law would dictate whether the crime would be subject to a statute of limitations, or whether it was sufficiently heinous to be prosecuted without time constraints.

Credit Unions do have laws and limitations about who can join and how much of the money that is in shares can be loaned out.

It would be very doubtful. Such a crime is definitely a felony. Many states do not have a statute of limitations on such crimes. And because a child is involved, even if they do have one, it doesn't start to run until the child turns 18.
