Atlanta US Customs Money Seizure

Atlanta US Customs Money Seizure

Atlanta US Customs Money Seizure:

Administrative seizures are authorized and are typically performed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection at points of entry into the U.S., like Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Georgia, the world’s busiest airport, with more than 95 million passengers annually. Customs is authorized to seize any property it has probable cause to believe is contraband or is not in compliance with federal regulations.

We can use various administrative review processes to petition directly for return of the property, or you may sue the seizing agency in federal court. Generally, the law offers claimants few protections when Customs has seized their property. While administrative seizure is not a criminal action, they can accompany them, unfortunately the government’s burden of proof in a forfeiture proceeding is lower than in a criminal case.

The burden of proof being shifted to you, the claimant, who must then prove you have a legitimate claim. Civil forfeiture is understandably controversial because it amounts to stiff punishments without the protections of a trial.
