This answer was rated:

what is the statue of limitations on check forgery in New York. Both my parents are deceased and although I knew my brother forged checks while they were alive (my mom was very ill) I did not prosecute then. I want to now. My says I may need to hire an independent handwriting analyst. Is that true?
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

The criminal statute of limitations is two years for forgery in New York.

You wouldn't need to hire an independent handwriting analyst. You would just need to file a police report.
