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.

Nebraska Cash Seizure

Nebraska Cash Seizure?

Since 2004, the U.S. attorney’s office in Nebraska has seized nearly $10 million and 20+ vehicles alleged to be involved in the drug trade, after traffic stops a long I-80 alone. Many of these seizures involve out-of-state cars and rentals, most are stopped for some minor traffic violation, speeding or following too closely, then it gets interesting. Each leads to a search, either after an officer got consent or a police dog “smelled” drugs. In many case police  find money but no drugs, drivers often don’t face criminal charges. The Government calls it a weapon in the war against drugs, we call it an illegal seizure. If no one tries to claim the money, the government gets it.

Every day  innocent motorists get caught in the middle of the war on drugs, as seasoned warriors, if you feel you are one of these innocent motorists we can help you fight when it’s NOT OK for the government to seize your hard earned money or vehicle.

Port Huron Michigan Customs Seizure: $55,591.00 US Currency Seized/$50,591.00 Returned

port-huron-mi

 

After nearly eight months of hard work, our team of customs attorneys recently recovered nearly $50,600.00 on behalf of a client whose funds were seized while crossing the US/Canada border in Port Huron, Michigan via the Blue Water Bridge.

This client, like many individuals traveling under stressful conditions, became flustered due to trouble crossing the border and failed to correctly report the amount of currency she possessed, merely as the result of confusion.  While she did, in good faith, report the money as required by law, she understated the amount she had.  Unfortunately, under reporting, just like failure to report at all, is enough to give US Customs and Border Patrol (US CBP) a reason to seize all the funds in a person’s possession.

Recovering money from US Customs requires individuals to quickly compile strong proof that the money seized is legitimate and that any failure to meet reporting requirements was an honest mistake.  Our customs lawyers spent months working to convince US CBP that the funds were from a legitimate source and that our client’s mistake was an honest one.  This process is long and complicated, and must be carried out strategically and with careful attention to the strict time limitations involved.  In order to obtain a successful recovery, as this client did, you need a lawyer who knows what kinds of proof will satisfy US CBP and who will zealously fight to get your money back before time runs out.

US Customs Seizure in Champlain New York: $18,001.00 US Currency, along with a 2010 Dodge Journey, Seized/$17,001.00 as well as the vehicle returned

US Customs Seizure in Champlain New York

In early August 2013, US Customs and Border Patrol notified our firm that one of our office had succeeded in recovering approximately $17,000.00 in US Currency along with a 2010 Dodge Journey, valued at around $14,000.00. This news came after several months of hard work and allowed us to help our client recover not only a significant amount of money, but also his key form of transportation.

US Customs and Border Patrol seized this client’s money when he and a family member attempted to travel by vehicle into New York from Canada and failed to report the cash that they were carrying with them.  This client, a Canadian citizen, regularly both travels and does business into the US, evening owning property here.  Despite this, and despite the fact that the money was completely legitimately sourced, US Customs and Border Patrol was still able to seize it due to their failure to report.

Unfortunately, failure to report funds upon border crossing is an honest mistake that many people make, and it can lead to extremely dire consequences if action is not taken immediately upon seizure.  While recovery is attainable, as was the case with this particular client, the process is not only complicated but also extremely time-sensitive.

Victim of a US Customs Seizure in Champlain New York? If this has happened to you or a loved one, don’t wait!  You need an expert lawyer who is familiar with the laws, procedures, and winning strategies for recovery—and you need someone who will give you the prompt, personalized attention to get this matter resolved within the appropriate time limits.  Let our expert legal team recover your money and contact us today for a free consultation!  Our attorneys are waiting to discuss your case 24/7 nationwide, so call us at 877-406-6906, or contact us with a private message.

Detroit-Windsor Tunnel Border Seizure: $12,00.00 US seized, $11,000.00 US Returned

Detroit-Windsor Tunnel Border Seizure

Detroit-Windsor Tunnel Border Seizure:

After five and 1/2 months of hard work, one of our customs attorneys recently succeeded in recovering nearly $12,000.00 in seized funds from US Customs and Border Patrol. These funds were seized in Detroit, Michigan, at the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel crossing while the client attempted to enter the USA from Windsor, Canada. While the funds were legitimate, the client misstated the amount of money that he was bringing into the country. Unaware of the strict and complex reporting requirements, the client did not realize the potential damage of such a mistake.

Because of the complexity of the law and process surrounding US Customs policy, this is an easy and all too common mistake, and what makes the situation worse is that many people are unaware that they can often recover these funds. Time is of the essence, however—in most cases, an individual will lose his opportunity to challenge a seizure if he fails to file a petition within 30 days. Additionally, the longer the money remains in the custody of U.S. Customs, the more likely the assets will be completely forfeited to the government. Finally, even with a diligent attorney, the complexity of US customs law often makes for a long recovery process. Given the harsh time constraints and complicated law, many individuals are not aware of their rights, or are unable to adequately fight for those rights. As a result, most of the millions of dollars that Customs seizes annually are forfeited to the US government.

Legal representation is of the utmost importance in this area. If this has happened to you, you need an advocate who knows the way around the complex policies and bureaucracy of Customs, and who can constantly, diligently fight for the recovery of your money before time runs out.

With so much at stake, why risk it? To retain our experienced customs seizures lawyers call 877-406-6906, or contact us with a private message, we practice throughout the US. If this has happened to you, or to a friend or loved one, time is of the essence, Call Now!
