Normally if the bad checks are included in bankruptcy the charges will be dropped. I really hope this helps you. I filed before charges were filed against me but I have a friend that had 4 outstanding payday loans and they had filed charges for bad checks. The charges were dropped immediately.

Usually the way criminal charges work is that the arresting or investigating agency will turn in all relevant documents to the District Attorney and then the DA will decide if there is enough evidence to support a trial or if the case should be dismissed.

In this process there is no 'one person' responsible for charging an alleged criminal.

The auto credit company will usually hire a investigator and they can file a lawsuit. But there is typically no criminal charges because, it's technically your vehicle.
