Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you today.

Unfortunately, there is no statute of limitations on a warrant. Nor is there a statute of limitations on a collection action or criminal/traffic matter once the process has been undertaken. A statute of limitations only prevents the state or private individual from bringing a case after a certain point. For example, if the statute of limitations to write someone a citation for failure to maintain insurance was one year, and you didn't receive the citation for 18 months, then you would have an argument that the citation was void due to the statute of limitations having run out. But once the action has commenced, the statute of limitations no longer applies.

If you need clarification or additional information, please REPLY and I'll be happy to assist you further. Otherwise, please remember to leave me a positive rating (3-5 stars) before signing out, as that is the only way experts on this site are compensated for our time and expertise, even though you may have paid a deposit to the site. Thank you!
