Sincerely, ________.

    RELIEF FROM FORFEITURE IN CONNECTION WITH THE SEIZED PROPERTY: Our client, a permanent resident of Canada, was traveling back to Canada from the Republic of South Korea after visiting her mother and family. According to Custom Laws, anybody who arrives in the United States or is in transit through the United States and is in possession of over $10,000.00 needs to declare the total amount of funds on their possession.

    Our client was aware that the undeclared limit per person was $10,000.00 and she therefore completed CBP Form 6059B and itemized the amount of funds that were in her possession while transiting to board her next flight to Montreal, Canada. After a review of her Form, CBP officeers decided to conduct a search and found that our client had more funds in her possession than was declared. Our office was retained to obtain the funds back from CBP. After contacting CBP and arguing our client's case, CBP approved our Petition filed on behalf of our client, and our client was able to receive her seized funds within four weeks of submitting the petition to the Government. Our client was charged only a minimal penalty for the inaccurate reporting. The Attorneys at Nachman, Phulwani, Zimovcak (NPZ) Law Group continue to assist individuals who have customs confiscation issues of cash at the border (with CBP). For more information about these services, please contact us at or call our offices at 201-670-0006 (x107).
