I was sentenced in 1997 to 10 months in federal prison and 700k in restitution. My lien which is filed in the county says it released in March of 1997. I called the flu and they said my case still isn’t closed and they could file for a renewal If they didn’t file for a renewal within the 20 year period can they go back after the expiration and refile again
I was unaware that federal restitution orders (like State restitution orders in FL) ever expire, being under the impression that they will outlive the subject.
I know that they are not dischargable in bankruptcy and I'm prettty sure that my understanding (that they do not expire) is correct.
If there is a 20 year expiration date then I'd love to know where the authority for that is as you will have taught me something new.
Wishing you luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
