Worthless Check Charges in Florida

Florida Back Check Law

In Florida, it is a criminal offense to knowingly give another person a worthless check as payment for goods or some service rendered. The same applies to stopping payment on a check for the purpose of committing fraud. These offenses may be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the value of the check written. Generally speaking, a worthless check offense will be charged as a felony if it was valued at $150 or more.
