    The debt will eventually be written off whether you move or change your name or not-in most cases. Certain debt (like that to the government in student loans, for example) are NEVER written off, and so you will never be rid of them. If you will not need credit for anything, it really doesn't matter, but few people go through life without financing something like a house or car. Also, some jobs require you have a clean credit report, such as many government jobs, or those in finance. My mom is nearly 80, with no assets and a bunch of debt. That will never be paid.

    The statute of limitations is seven years so if the debt is not paid by that time it becomes unenforceable.

    the company you owe might write it off but they will sell your account to a collection agency that will come after you.

    It's six years in the UK and it's not written off but becomes unenforceable. Although if you acknowledge the debt then it becomes enforceable again and the six years starts again. The only exception to this is court fines and tax arrears, they are always enforceable. It might be similar in other countries but you should check.

    it will be written off long before that.

    But written off is only an accounting term. It wont stop collection efforts or mean you do not owe.


    7 years is when it falls off your credit.

    PS, you can be sued and your paycheck garnished if you have a stable job.

    not necessarily:

    It depends on (among other things)

    1. The type of debt - for example IRS tax debt NEVER goes away

    2. Local laws regarding the statute of limitations

    3. What (if any) effort the creditor makes to try to collect the debt. In many states in the USA, the statute of limitations for debts applies when there is an extended period of no activity. If the creditor is continuously attempting to collect the debt by actions such as suing the person and renewing the associated judgement, they can keep the debt active forever.

    4. Judges can sometimes make exceptions to laws when there are extenuating circumstances. For example if you owe a debt and you have moved around and changed your name for the specific purpose of making it harder for the debt collectors to find you and collect, they could rule that you still owe the debt even if the statute of limitations had already expired. Or they could charge you with criminal fraud if you took out loans with no intent to repay them.

    The bottom line is that life is not that simple. You won't get ahead by running away from your bills. You will go much farther in life if you make good financial choices and face your responsibilities head on.
