Wage Garnishment Help Saginaw

Can I stop wage garnishment right now?

If you’ve seen a part of your paycheck held in order to pay back a debt collector before you’ve received the money, then that is wage garnishment. Wage garnishment can be used on certain debts even if there is no court order. These debts are things like deferred student loan payments, past-due income tax, and unpaid child support.

Stop Wage Garnishment Saginaw

Wage garnishment can cause:

  1. Shame (since your employer is notified of your financial situation).
  2. Serious financial hardship (since you have to make ends meet with less income). Creditors might take much as 25% of your pay, leaving you with less than you need for daily expenses.

Filing for bankruptcy will put an end to wage garnishment by activating an automatic stay. With this automatic stay, creditors are not allowed to collect your debt by any means for the entire period of your bankruptcy, including with wage garnishment.
