    Default Statute of Limitations for a Domestic Violence Civil Suit

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: North Carolina

    My ex-wife is threatening to file a civil lawsuit for domestic violence that she claims occurred several years before we were divorced. We have been divorced since 2010. Do you know what the statute of limitations is in North Carolina for this?

    I do not know, but I think that the odds are that its less than the 8 years you have been divorced.

    A quick review of NC statutes of limitations for civil actions says 3 years for assault, battery or false imprisonment. That covers all the DV acts I can think of.
