Is postdating a check illegal in virginia

The District Attorney will not prosecute for its payment.

So while I don't believe it's illegal to write one, the check itself is "not legal" in terms of being something you can successfully sue for.

If I give you a check today that's dated June 24th, it's stale.

But as previously noted, I'm not sure what the point is; it's still good even though it's stale. Post dating checks is not illegal otherwise my company would be in a heap o' trouble.

Don't know if it is legal or not, but then again...

who really stops at a stop sign when no other car is coming or slows down at a yellow light?

02 when it is really 17 Dec 02 so therefore you are posting the date after the said date.

I pre-date checks all the time and the bank won't cash them until the said date, but that is in TX.

In Missouri and/or Kansas, the date on a check is indeed to be the date it was written, and a post-dated check is not a valid document.

If there's a payment problem and it goes to court, the payee is out of luck.

If the bank honors this and cashes out the check before the written date, they are in effect giving free money to the bearer of the check, since there is no money in the account (yet) to back up the transaction. 17, the person you give it to may wait to deposit it. The check is payable on presentation regardless of the date on it. A check is legally "the same as cash," which means that writing a check when you don't have the cash is not legally acceptable.
