Wage Garnishment Help Flint

Can I stop a wage garnishment right now?

If your wages are being garnished, then part of your pay is withheld to pay back a debt collector. Your money will be taken from your pay before you even get it. Wage garnishment can be used to collect certain kinds of debts even when there’s been no court order. Some examples of debts eligible for this are past-due income tax, deferred student loan payments, and unpaid child support.

Stop Wage Garnishment Flint

Wage garnishment can cause:

  1. Shame (since your employer is dragged into your financial situation).
  2. A period of severe financial trouble (since you are forced to make ends meet with less income). Creditors can take up to 25% of your salary, leaving you with less than you need to buy things.

You can put a stop to wage garnishment by filing for bankruptcy. It will activate an automatic stay that puts a stop to creditors’ collection attempts, even wage garnishment, as long as you are in the bankruptcy process.
