Any property which was used in or acquired through illegal activities may be subject to Civil Asset Forfeiture. Both Federal and State governments use Civil Asset Forfeiture to punish and deter criminal activity. Civil Asset forfeiture is initiated when the government confiscates assets from a person suspected of a crime. The person does not need to be arrested for a Civil Asset Forfeiture to proceed. The government can take your belongings on a mere suspicion of criminal activity.
