Will I Go to Jail for Not Paying My Debts?
If you're struggling to pay your debts, you might be wondering if you could go to jail for not paying them. The answer is usually no – but there are some exceptions.
If you don't pay your debts, your creditors may take legal action against you. This can result in a judgment being made against you, which can then be enforced by bailiffs. However, bailiffs can only take certain types of action – and they can't send you to jail.
There are some debts where non-payment can lead to criminal proceedings, but these are rare. For example, if you don't pay your taxes or fines, you could be prosecuted. But even then, it's unlikely that you would be sent to prison – more likely, you would be given a fine or community service.
