Asset Recovery is the confiscation of assets or property allegedly acquired by the proceeds of a crime.
Our attorneys understand the complexity of these cases and understand what is required in the petitions, release, manipulation, or export in any given case.
Many American citizens traveling abroad are unaware of the requirement to report the transportation of U.S. or foreign currency. In fact, U.S. law requires that any currency or other monetary equivalents that exceed a $10,000.00 threshold must be reported directly to U.S. Customs and Border Security prior to entering or leaving the country. The consequences for violating the law can be severe, and may include the seizure of the assets as well as other penalties. In a global environment of escalating crime and the threat of terrorism, U.S. Customs agents are particularly sensitive to large, unreported sums of cash entering or leaving the country. Read More

Most people make the mistake of believing that only cash is subject to seizure. When they fail to report other currency on the required report during customs, they are surprised to find other monetary instruments are confiscated. Monetary instruments are defined as United States coins and currency, coins and currency from a foreign country, travelers’ checks, personal checks, business checks, and bank checks, Securities, and Stocks. A safe assumption to make is that any form of money must be reported to customs whether or not it shows up on the list to prevent seizure.
Monetary instruments include: 1) U.S. or foreign coins and currency; 2) Traveler checks in any form; 3) Negotiable instruments (including checks, promissory notes, and money orders) that are either in bearer form, endorsed without restriction, made out to a fictitious payee, or otherwise in a form that the funds can be transferred to another person; 4) Incomplete instruments (including checks, promissory notes, and money orders) signed, but with the payee’s name omitted; and 5) Securities or stock in bearer form or otherwise in a form that the funds can be transferred to another person.
