Wage Garnishment Help Westland

Can I stop wage garnishment right now?

Yes, bankruptcy can stop it immediately. If part of your paycheck is being taken out before you get it to give to creditors, then your wages are being garnished. In most cases a judge has to rule to garnish your wages, but Westland wage garnishment doesn’t always require that. Here are some situations where your wages can be garnished without a judge ordering it: unpaid child support, past due student loan debt, and past due income tax debt.

Stop Wage Garnishment Westland

Wage garnishment can cause:

  1. Public embarrassment (since your employer is notified of your financial situation).
  2. Financial difficulties (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.

With bankruptcy active, Westland wage garnishment will stop. The automatic stay activated by bankruptcy makes collection attempts against you illegal, including wage garnishment. In fact, creditors can’t even contact you directly. Anything they have to say has to go through your Detroit Bankruptcy Law attorneys first.
