A: That depends on what sort of 'claim' you have.

Judgments are good for 10 years unless renewed, and there is the '40 year marketable title' act to deal with.

Your rights depend on a lot of things that aren't discernible from this question, and would require disclosing things not appropriate in a public forum. Your best bet is to contact a local attorney in the area where the property is located to review all the facts and the chain of title to determine what if anything you can do. Good luck.
