    Answered . What's the question whether there's a statute of limitations for lender fraud cases? Yes. When you say guilty verdict do you literally mean a criminal case where they were convicted or was there a civil judgment against them? Regardless, are they a US Citizen? If they are, yes, they could return. Whether they'd want to is another issue.

    Judgments are permanent unless reversed in criminal and civil cases. They can be renewed in civil cases every ten years.

    Answered . There are various state and federal statutes which govern claims for mortgage fraud. Each has a different limitations period. Some, such as TILA, have very short limitations periods of only one year for some claims. I believe that California has a fairly short statute of limitations period for common law fraud claims - three years.
