Wage Garnishment Help Mt. Clemens

Can I stop wage garnishment right now?

If a portion of your wages is being held back to pay off debt collectors before you even get it, then your wages are being garnished. Even without a court order, wage garnishment can be used for certain kinds of debt. Examples of such kinds of debts are unpaid child support, past-due income tax, and deferred student loan payments.

Stop Wage Garnishment Mt. Clemens

Wage garnishment can cause:

  1. Embarrassment (since your employer is notified of your financial situation).
  2. A period of serious financial hardship (as you are forced to make ends meet with less income). Creditors can as much as 25% of your pay, leaving you with less than you need to buy things.

Filing for bankruptcy will stop wage garnishment. The automatic stay that is activated means creditors can no longer try to collect your debt in any way, including wage garnishment, for the full period of your bankruptcy.
