Filing Deadlines


Texas Counties Deliver
Filing Deadline

TWO Years is the Statute of Limitation on a check under the value of $1,500.00.

We will have a better chance to obtain restitution when the matters are filed with the County Attorney’s office within 90 days.  We strongly urge you to file your checks with this office as soon as possible or within 90 days of issuance.

Problems tend to arise when checks are filed way past the 90 days of issuance. This kind of delay allows the check writer to move on, so their trail is cold.  Our office has more difficulty in locating and prosecuting these persons.
