    Answered . Typically one year from the date of the occurrence to the date of the filing. If the filing is aged, then you may have other alternatives for a dismissal so contact an attorney to discuss further. I have a website that's several pages long on the topic of identity theft, but the short answer is identity theft occurs when someone uses another person's personally identifying information, like a person's name, Social Security number, or credit card number or other financial information, without permission, to commit fraud or other crimes.

    I wish you the best.

    Answered . Without the specific statute, it is difficult to say. Generally, however, California misdemeanor's have a one year statute of limitation and California felonies have a 3 year statute of limitations - with some exceptions.
