    Just call the store and ask them. They may have sent it to the wrong address, or maybe (unlikely) they've just let it go. Once you call them, you'll have a better idea of what you need to do next. Good luck!

    Concur with Christina, you need to call the store. Ask to speak with someone in Loss Prevention, they will have the necessary information.

    It's not unusual for it to take a while to receive a Civil Demand. Stores like Target bust shoplifters several times a day, and their Civil Demands are handled from one central location. They're often quite backlogged.

    Consider yourself fortunate! You really should've gone to jail! Shoplifting with your kids in tow?!?!?

    If that'd been my 'hood the Law would've taken your kids to DCFS and you to jail with a charge of child endangerment at the very least!!!

    Actually, Daviolsh@1968, you're very lucky not to have DCFS involved! What you did could have been construed as a bigger deal than it has! And, from the way you typed out your situation, I suppose it is entirely possible the Civil Demand may have been sent to the wrong address or returned to sender for illegibility? Atrocious spelling and punctuation make it almost impossible to decipher your post to help you with your situation! If you actually *do* get your Civil Demand, pay it in full and be done with it. Also, stay away from that stores property for a *long* time...
