Will filing bankruptcy stop criminal prosecutions, including charges relating to writing a bad check?
Filing bankruptcy does not stop criminal actions brought against you, including without limitation, criminal actions brought against you for having given someone a bad check. Payday loans are loans and are not bad checks notwithstanding what the payday lender may tell you and will not result in criminal charges. The creditor may be liable for damages for violation of the automatic stay if a bad check is reported after the bankruptcy case is filed, but not if the bad check is reported to the authorities before the case is filed.
This information applies to All Counties in North Carolina.
