If a warrant has been issued, there is no statute of

limitations. You've been given notice. It is just a matter of

catching up to you. A routine traffic stop could end up with you in

cuffs. Pay it off and live without it over your head.

If a warrant hasn't been filed, I believe there is a 2 year statute

of limitations on a misdemeanor check, and a 4 year statute for a

felony check. A misdemeanor check is a check wrote for 499 dollars

or less. And a felony is for anything above 500 dollars. I believe

it's a felony if written on an out of state check, regardless of

the amount.
