Stopping payment on a check is not always a criminal offense. State laws determine when such action constitutes a violation of the criminal statutes. Generally, charges can be filed when the person stops payment on a check with the intent to defraud, for example writing a check when one is aware that there are not sufficient funds in the account.
There are many legitimate reasons to stop payment on a check, the check is stolen or misplaced, the check is post-dated, the check is 180 days or more old, and so forth.
It depends on the situation. Yes - If a check is lost or stolen then it is perfectly legal to cancel it No - If you have given it as a means of payment for some goods or services and you owe the other party money. In this case, the other party will not get paid the money and they can initiate legal action against you for not paying them.
Yes. It is perfectly legal for the person who issued the check to put a stop payment on it. However, if the check was issued to pay for some goods or services offered by someone or for a loan, the receiving entity also has a legal claim and hence can file a police complaint against you for not making the payment. So, you need to talk to the person to whom you gave the check to settle the amount amicably before you issue the stop payment.
It depends on who you are... If you are the one who issued the cheque then: You can make an alternate payment to the payee to ensure that he does not initiate a legal proceeding against you. If you are the one who received the cheque then: You can request the cheque issuer to re-issue the payment, which if he fails to do so, you can raise a legal proceeding against him.
You are the legal owner/payee of the check and if someone else cashes it, it is a crime. You can raise a legal complaint against the person (if you know who did it) or if you don't know who did it, you can raise a formal complaint with the bank and they will help you identify the fraudster and then you can raise a complaint against them. You have the right to claim the payment that was due to you through the check.
Yes, you can do a stop payment. However, the bank where you issue the stop payment will charge a fee for doing so. Plus, the person to whom you gave the check can sue you for non-payment of money and file a legal complaint against you to the police. This can cause you to be arrested.
You can take legal action against a noisy neighbor. You can file a nuisance law suit. Before you attempt this, you should check to see what the noise regulations are in your area. This way you will know if the neighbor is in fact breaking these rules.
Legal action mean to initiate legal proceeding against the person who is liable for the act due to which you have suffered.
It is legal to do so as long as the reason for writing the check in the first place was not fraudulent, and as long as you promptly take other means to make good on the payment.
No. There is no immediate action for not taking advocates legal notice but there is every possibility legal proceedings may be initiated against you in the appropriate court of law.
A business has a separate legal identity from its owners. It can start legal action against another business or individual in order to protect itself. Other businesses and individuals have the right to take legal action against the business.
If the person issueing a check puts a stop payment on it, the person or business to whom the money is owed has legal recourse to sue.
You should send him a notice through your lawyer and tell him that he is already is behind in payment of child support. And that legal action will be taken against him if he doesnot pay up.
..... is called the PLAINTIFF.
You can take legal action once 1 payment is missed in Ohio. The person required to pay the child support can be charged with a first degree misdemeanor offense for their first charge of non-payment.
Yeah, if you do, the bank would issue a stop payment on the cheque. If you try to deny after encashing the cheque the bank would file a legal case against you
It is not legal for a company to take any action against you because you are pregnant.
Yes, it is possible. The company may take you to court and/or file a lien against you. The proper place for contesting the payment would be, first with the company itself, and if no satisfaction is reached, take them to court.
Legal action taken against a citizen to bring them to court.
They are against the ToU, and will get your account banned. Plus blizzard can take legal action against you.
It's completely legal, if you've agreed to make a check payment over the phone. They can't take the payment without that information.
You can do either of the below things:Contact the person who gave you the check and ask them to re-issue a fresh checkIf they refuse to re-issue a check and they owe you money, you can file a legal complaint against them for fraud or non-repayment of money with the law enforcement authorities (cops)
Certainly, although to do so could place you in serious legal difficulties.
Nope... You signed a binding contract.
There aren't any specific legal terms for that action.
Im pretty sure its the same in every state. You would be charged with a return check charge by the company you gave the check to and your bank could charge a fee daily for the insufficient funds. Of course legal action could come about if you wrote a check knowing all well you are receving goods with NO intension of honest payment...
