Wage Garnishment Help Port Huron

How can I stop a wage garnishment right away?

Wage garnishment means that a part of your paycheck is withheld to be paid to a debt collector. That means that your pay will be given away before you even get it. First, the creditor needs a court order against you, which they get by filing a lawsuit against you. However, with a wage garnishment, they can collect certain kinds of debt without a court order. Examples are things like past-due income tax, unpaid child support, and deferred student loan payments.

Stop Wage Garnishment Port Huron

Wage garnishment can cause:

  1. Embarrassment (since your employer will be involved in your financial troubles).
  2. A period of severe financial difficulty (as you have to live off of less income). Creditors can take up to 25% of your wages, leaving you with less than you need for daily expenses.

The quickest way to stop wage garnishment is by filing for bankruptcy which stops it immediately. It puts an automatic stay into place that prevents creditors from collecting from you, including wage garnishment, throughout the bankruptcy process.
