Notable Portions Of Florida Law For Bad Checks

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]When it comes to worthless payments, Florida law can be complicated, but if used correctly, is written in favor of the creditor.

  1. FL Statute 673.1041 – Negotiable Instruments – This outlines the different instruments of payments and which instrument is applicable for which action.  
  2. FL Statute 68.065 – Civil Practices.  This outlines the civil actions you can take against the debtor.
  3. FL Statute 832.05 – Violations involving checks and drafts. This outlines the criminal offenses, both misdemeanor and felony, for issuing worthless checks.

Fighting Back Against Bad Checks

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The silver lining is that Florida Statute, through Civil Proceedings, allows you to seek treble damages in the amount of three times the check value. So your bad check for $10,000 entitles you to seek compensation for damages of $30,000.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”center” overlay_strength=”0.3″ shape_divider_position=”bottom” bg_image_animation=”none” shape_type=””][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_link_target=”_self” column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/4″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none”][/vc_column][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_link_target=”_self” column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/2″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” bg_image_animation=”none”][vc_column_text]If you are a construction contractor who has been written a bad check, there are ways to make things right.
