Criminal Records in Bankruptcy Process

Bankruptcy is an option available to virtually everyone including non-citizens in the U.S. and people with an arrest record or criminal history.  With so many people getting arrested for protesting and incurring bail bonds debt, it would be beneficial to know that bail bonds are dischargeable in federal bankruptcy court near me. However, fines and court penalties during an arrest or citation cannot be removed in bankruptcy court.

Unfortunately for the marijuana industry across the country, even in states where marijuana is legalized, their business cannot file for bankruptcy. Since weed is still criminalized nationally and bankruptcy is held in federal court, businesses that distribute or produce marijuana cannot seek financial relief. This does not mean that marijuana business owners will be arrested if they attempt to file for bankruptcy, but will be denied a discharge of their debt
