Accusation of a crime is no light matter and it should be taken seriously when you are interviewed or notified of the charges against you. Every individual is deemed to be innocent until proven guilty and have a fair chance at justice, which we encourage.

Asset Confiscation And Proceeds Of Crime

People whose hard-earned property or assets seized by law enforcement often do not know how to get them back or they fear of criminal charges for even trying. Property and assets can be restrained and/or forfeited under Confiscation Act 1997 (Victoria) or Proceeds of Crime Act 2002(Commonwealth) if derived from unlawful activity. Assets subject to criminal forfeitures are typically cash, properties, vehicles, gold or jewelry, mobile and any items purchased with alleged criminal funds or allegedly used during crimes.

You should immediately seek legal advice once you have been served with the restraining order because your property and assets are at risk of being forfeited and there is strict timelines to be complied in protecting your interests.
