Without time limits to file criminal charges or civil claims, the judicial system would be less efficient and cases would (in many instances) be forced to use older and less-reliable evidence. That is why states have statutes of limitations -- or time limits -- for filing such actions. Welcome to FindLaw's section covering the statutes of limitations for the state of Nevada, with articles on time limits for both civil claims and criminal charges. You'll find up-to-date listings of these time limits and explanations about how they work (for example, when time is "tolled" for such purposes).
