  1. In Wisconsin postdated checks are not criminal. They are treated like other promissory notes.

    If any answer on AVVO helps you, mine or someone else’s, please mark it as "helpful" or "best answer" to help AVVO know which answers to show others.

    Thank you.

    Confidential information should not be disclosed in this Internet forum. I am a Wisconsin lawyer. The laws in each jurisdiction can be very different. I cannot give legal advice over the internet nor can I establish an attorney client relationship with you. You should NOT assume or otherwise conclude that there is an attorney -client relationship between any reader and this writer or his firm. These comments are only guideposts. They are not subject to any privilege protections. Indeed, these internet communications are neither privileged nor confidential. Accordingly, those using this form of communication need to be guarded in what they write. Because of the nature of these communications the information is general only and should not be relied upon in any specific case. This internet site is public forum, where the communications are not confidential or privileged. There may very well be merit to your defense or position in this type of situation. However, there are hardly sufficient details for an attorney to provide you with some path to follow. It is imperative that ALL of the facts in a particular situation be examined. No conclusion can be drawn from the communication that you have provided. There are some matters that are just better handled by an attorney familiar with the procedures of the courts in your area. Most, if not all, legal matters should not be handled via internet communication. At best, the responders on this site can give you a few hints and guidance. To deal with a legal problem, nothing is better than to consult with a lawyer who will give you some time and advice. If you cannot afford an attorney, there should be agencies in your area that can provide discounted, or even free, legal services.

  2. Most of the time, the criminal system is aware that if a person is incarcerated they cannot have any means in which to pay bills. That means that at least now you have hope of finding a job and paying things back. If you were in jail you would not. You may be better off notifying them that you have come into this situation.


  3. If you wrote a check and were aware you didn't have money in the bank
    account, you may run into problems. A smart thing to do is visit a
    bankruptcy attorney about options very soon. For instance, a Chapter 13
    bankruptcy filing may allow you to keep your car and catch up any missed
    payments over a 3 to 5 year period and avoid having your car get
    repossessed. When talking to the bankruptcy attorney, mention your concern
    about the check not clearing.
