There are statute of limitations in all civil cases. There is a 20 year statute of limitations to enforce a judgment. Prior to the 20 years, s.806.07 would apply. For allegations of fraud, mistake, neglect and inadvertence, there is a 1 year limitation from the date of the order or judgment. For other factors under the statute, the motion must be filed in a timely and reasonable fashion for the motionto be considered. Sooner is better than later.
