Under the new Insolvency law, people won’t be jailed for a bounced cheque, instead, a debtor can now approach a civil court in the emirate they reside in and invoke their insolvency status.

Once the court declared insolvent, the civil court will appoint financial experts to come up with a long-term payment plan with the debtor and creditor. Payments can be done through direct payments to the creditor or by assets owned.

When the payment plan in place, debtors will not face any legal prosecution during that period, and will also have the criminal case against them wiped out once all payments have been completed so they won’t have any criminal record against them
