Is there a statute of limitations on probation or parole supervision fees and/or court costs?

Is there a statute of limitations on probation or parole supervision fees and/or court costs?

If the parole and/or probation occurred in Philadelphia county and the probation or parole would have terminated but for the unpaid supervision fees or court costs, you can have your lawyer file a motion to terminate the probation and have the remaining balance of payments act as a civil lien only.

The purpose of this motion would to be to terminate the probation so that you no longer have to report to the probation department or be under the supervision of the judge. The remaining balance would act as a civil judgment or lien against you forever.

If you are on state parole, I do not know the answer.
