Omaha Statute of Limitations

Statute of limitations may vary from state to state, however the general concept remains the same. Statute of limitations were created to limit the amount of time a person can take to file a civil or criminal lawsuit, or the amount of time the state can take to prosecute a person for committing a certain crime.  In most instances, the statute of limitation will depend on the crime involved or legal claim.
