Restraint of Assets
Restraint of Your Assets
Restraint of your assets can take place long before any finding of guilt.
A restraint order can be obtained by a prosecuting authority at an early stage of a criminal investigation, often before charges are brought. With the introduction of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 came an increased determination by the government to confiscate assets of those individuals whom authorities suspected to be guilty of criminal activity.
A restraint order is issued by courts as a way of freezing or preserving assets that may be later confiscated, under a confiscation order, following a criminal conviction. It is possible, if you are under investigation for a serious fraud, money laundering or VAT and Tax fraud that you will be the subject of a restraint order.
If you become subject to a restraint order, you will be allowed a weekly allowance from your assets. If this allowance is insufficient for you and your family’s basic needs, you will be prevented from accessing your additional assets. Instead, you will need to renegotiate with the court and prosecuting authorities for an allowance increase.
If you have been accused of a serious crime and are concerned about the potential of a restraint order and subsequent confiscation proceedings then you need to contact me as soon as possible. I will give you practical legal advice, help you detail your assets for the court and represent you in any court proceedings.
