The Collateral Consequences Assessment Tool, or C-CAT, provides a link to resources for those who regularly work with people involved with the criminal justice system in North Carolina, both before and after disposition. North Carolina statutes and regulations require or authorize a wide array of collateral consequences and civil disabilities when a person is convicted of a crime. C-CAT centralizes the collateral consequences imposed under North Carolina law for a criminal conviction and helps attorneys, other professionals, and affected individuals advise people more accurately and completely about the impact of a conviction.

Users can search the tool by crime characteristics, by consequence category, or with keywords.

Note: C-CAT is current through the North Carolina General Assembly's 2020 legislative session
