In the United Kingdom, post-dating a cheque carries no legal weight and so such a cheque can be cashed before the due date.However, a bank may refuse to honour a cheque if the post-date is noticed; otherwise, the payer has no right to take any form of legal action against the bank for letting the cheque be processed.
Any person may informally aid or promote an adoption by making a person seeking to adopt a minor aware of a minor who will be or is available for adoption.
(B) A person seeking to adopt a minor who knowingly makes a false statement that is included in an application submitted to an agency or attorney to obtain services of that agency or attorney in arranging an adoption is guilty of the offense of falsification under section 2921.13 of the Revised Code.
The two major issues before the courts are: 1) Post-dated cheques that are stopped by the bank or issuer, causing problems for whoever is to be paid by the cheque for goods or services provided and; 2) the reverse, in which a person is promised goods or services but does not receive them and has to stop the cheque.
In the UK the legislation is clear; 'A cheque is a bill of exchange drawn on a banker payable on demand'.
The post-dated cheque is not payable till the date which is shown on the face of the said document.
