Civil Confiscation Orders Lawyers

Whether you have been found guilty of an offence, acquitted, or in some case not even been prosecuted for a crime, you can be subject to a confiscation order for possession of property obtained unlawfully.  The agency prosecuting can apply to the High Court for a civil recovery rder.  Civil asset recovery usually starts with an interim proceeding order, which the law enforcement authority will use to prevent you from disposing or hiding the property until the judgment is handed down.

The law surrounding Civil Asset Recovery and confiscation orders is set out in the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. A civil confiscation order applies to property and can affect interests held by third parties that the respondent may have passed the property on to. Once the confiscation order reaches the enforcement stage, third parties can make submissions to enforce their rights in the property.
