Bad Check Collection Attorney in Atlanta Georgia
Collection of NSF checks in Georgia
Nothing is more frustrating to a creditor who has provided goods or services to a client than to receive payment in the form of check that is later returned by the bank as insufficient funds. Fortunately, the state of Georgia Bad Check Laws are in your favor and by following the correct procedures to collect on a bad check, you will most likely be able to recover your money as well as additional bad check penalties.
Insufficient funds check collection in Georgia
The state of Georgia has stiff penalties for those who pass bad checks. In most cases, the creditor will be able to add double the amount of the check (Up to $500) and a bad check administration fee of $25 as a statutory bad check penalty. Unfortunately, this statute does not extend to stop payment checks, but if the debtor has issued a bad check returned by the bank as insufficient funds, the penalty can be assessed. In addition, Georgia has bad check criminal statutes in effect that cover checks that have been issued as insufficient funds. Please contact our offices to obtain more information regarding these statutes.
