Arkansas Statutes of Limitations

Welcome to FindLaw's section on the statutes of limitations in Arkansas. The statute of limitations is the time a plaintiff in a civil action or a prosecutor in a criminal matter has to file a claim or charges. The civil statute of limitations is meant to discourage would-be plaintiffs from threatening legal action indefinitely, which could create a chilling effect on another party. The criminal statute of limitations, meanwhile, is meant to ensure a speedy trial and to preserve the integrity of the evidence, although murder and some other serious crimes don't have time limits.
