Can You Be Arrested and Put in Jail if You Don’t Pay Your Debts?


In America, debt is a part of daily life. From credit cards to mortgages, most people are in some form of debt. But what happens if you can't pay your debts? Can you be arrested and put in jail?

The short answer is no. You cannot be arrested and put in jail for failing to pay your debts. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. If you fail to pay child support or alimony, you can be held in contempt of court and jailed. Additionally, if you fail to appear for a court hearing related to your debt, a warrant may be issued for your arrest.


While you cannot be jailed for failing to pay your debts, there are other consequences that can come from not paying. Your credit score will suffer, making it harder to get loans in the future.
