Can I be arrested for not paying my debts?

As long as fraud and theft are not involved, you can not be arrested and jailed for failing to pay your debt. However, creditors can go after you monetarily to reclaim the amount owed to them, which means that they can sue you but unless there is criminal activity you cannot be arrested.  The concept of debtor's prison has been outdated for centuries in America.
