Wage Garnishment Help Bay City

How can I stop a wage garnishment today?

Wage garnishment means that a piece of your paycheck is subtracted before you get the money so it can be used to pay back a debt collector. In most cases, the creditor needs a court decision against you through a lawsuit. However, there are some kinds of debts that can be collected through wage garnishment without a court judgment. Examples of these debts are past-due income tax debt, unpaid child support, and deferred student loan debt.

Stop Wage Garnishment Bay City

Wage garnishment can mean:

  1. Embarrassment (as your boss is implicated in your financial troubles).
  2. Serious financial difficulty (since you are forced to make ends meet with less money). Creditors can garnish up to 25% of your salary, leaving you with less than you need to buy things.

If you are experiencing wage garnishment or know that it’s about to start, let us stop it immediately by filing for bankruptcy. That sets off an automatic stay that prohibits creditors from collecting your debts throughout the bankruptcy process.
