    Most banks won't cash a check after a year (some 6 months) if there are no expiration date on it. Since checks can be used over the phone, the date won't matter. For an electronic check, all the bank will do is make sure there isn't a stop payment associated on that check number.

    There is no time limit. The date on the check is for your reference only and has no legal bearing on when the check can be cashed. It can even be cashed before the date (if you write the check with 9/3/2010 today, the recipient can still cash it today, and your bank will honor it).

    Depends on the check. Some checks will say "Void after 30-60-90 Days." If it doesn't specifically say then there's no time limit as long as the account is still active.
