Will I Go to Jail for Not Paying My Debts?


When you struggle to make ends meet and cannot afford to pay your debts in full, it can be frightening to think about the legal ramifications. Many people are worried that they will go to jail if they do not repay their debts. It is important to understand the laws surrounding debt collection so that you can make informed decisions about how to manage your finances.


In most cases, not paying your debts does not mean that you will automatically end up behind bars. Debtors’ prisons have been abolished since 1833, meaning creditors cannot force a debtor into prison for non payment of a debt in the United States. However, if you commit other illegal acts related to debt such as writing bad checks or lying on credit applications, then this could lead to criminal charges and possible jail time.
