This toolkit is an introduction to civil asset forfeiture, and it is written specifically for anyone whose property has recently been taken by law enforcement. This toolkit is intended to help you understand which laws allowed your property to be seized, what happens throughout the legal process, and what you can do to try to get your property back. This toolkit is also meant to help anyone who is interested in better understanding civil asset forfeiture, even if it has never happened to you. It may even help you prevent your assets from being forfeited in the future.
