A: Why are you doing anything for your father? Unless you have a power of attorney then he needs to get his own attorney. Its not ethical to discuss someone else's legal problems with you.

The statute of limitations in GA is 6 years so it does not matter. Who is this lease with? Your father needs to have an attorney write a letter denying liability for this account if the lease was in the business name and not your father's. Your father needs to ask in the letter for a copy of the lease - it may have a forum selection clause in it. What this means is that the lease may say that it is governed by some other state's laws and that any lawsuits have to be in the other state. This is important to know. Please have your father email me at if he is interested.
