How can I stop a wage garnishment right away?

If you have an outstanding debt that you’ve missed payments on, a creditor can choose to sue you so that a judge will decide to garnish your wages. This means that part of your pay is taken each paycheck to give to the creditor.

Generally, a judge has to make this happen but that’s not always the case. There are debts like overdue income tax debt, student loan debt, or unpaid child support, where your wages can be garnished without a judge ordering it.

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.
