How can I stop a wage garnishment right away?

If a creditor has sued you due to your debts, then a judge may decide to have your wages garnished to pay them back. This is when a portion of each paycheck is taken before you get it and given to creditors.

There doesn’t always have to be a court order, though. With debts such as overdue income tax debt, unpaid child support, or student loan debt, you can have your wages garnished without a judge’s order.

Wage garnishment can cause:

  1. Shame (your employer is involved in your financial troubles).
  2. Serious financial complications (since you are forced to make ends meet with less income). Creditors might seize up to 25% of your net pay, leaving you with little money to buy groceries or gas.
