Has CBP Seized Your Money at JFK, La Guardia or Liberty?
If CBP has seized your money, hire a lawyer who will fight for you!
Without an experienced lawyer at your side, you won’t like how it ends (permanent loss of your hard-earned cash!). We’ve handled hundreds of cash seizure cases in the past 10+ years.
Most cash seizures occur for a “failure to report.” This happens when someone fails to declare that they’re carrying over $10,000 into or out of the United States from another country. The law requiring the report is 31 USC § 5316, which requires anybody who travels internationally with the equivalent of $10,000 USD or more to give Customs a FinCen 105 form when you enter or leave the U.S. “Bulk cash smuggling” (31 USC § 5332) and structuring offenses (31 USC § 5324) are even more serious charges with higher penalties.
The law makes it easier for the government to detect and seize money from criminal sources and for illegal uses (drug trafficking, terrorism, tax evasion, money laundering, etc.). If you’ve been accused of failure to report, or another similar charge that’s allowed CBP to seize your money in New York or New Jersey, we can help.
