What is the Statute of Limitations for Consumer Debt in Connecticut?

If you have been served with a Summons and Complaint for a lawsuit in the Superior Court of Connecticut or a Small Claims Writ for Small Claims Court, it is important to be aware of the statute of limitations for consumer debt. The statute of limitations determines during what time period an action can be commenced against you.

Under the Connecticut General Statutes, the statute of limitations for bringing a breach of contract action is six years. The six-year rule, however, only applies in the case of a written contract. In cases where there is an oral contract, the statute of limitations in only three years. Legal actions brought in Connecticut as a result of a payment default on a credit card account, loan, or promissory note are generally governed by the six-year statute of limitations.

The statute of limitations, or more appropriately, the lapsing of the statute of limitations, can be raised as a special defense under Connecticut law. If you are being sued by a credit card company or a debt buyer, don't wait to get the help you need. We can help you! Contact us today at 1-888-272-2718 for a free case evaluation!
