Georgia US Customs Money Seizure

Georgia US Customs Money Seizure

Georgia US Customs Money Seizure:

Several defenses exist to Civil Seizure actions:

  • You can challenge the Government’s factual claims. i.e. If the Government cannot show by a preponderance of the evidence that the currency or property in question, was involved in a specified unlawful activity or that you attempted to avoid certain reporting requirements, then its forfeiture claim will fail.
  • Innocent owners also have a defense to a Seizure action and may regain their property even though it was involved in a specified unlawful activity. However, you would be required to prove that you did not know about the illegal conduct, and that you money was essentially “along for the ride”.
  • The 8TH Amendment, which prohibits excessive fines, may come into play where the forfeiture or Seizure sought by the Government is “grossly disproportionate” to the unlawful activity alleged.

Everyday we speak with people who have had the very Government who means to protect them, take their life savings because it is loosely associated with “some” crime. Civil forfeiture gives the government the power to confiscate virtually all a person’s assets, where everyone knows you are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, civil forfeiture turns that principle on its head, with civil Seizure, your property is guilty until you prove it innocent.
