Wage Garnishment Help Southgate

Can I stop wage garnishment right now?

Bankruptcy can stop wage garnishment right away. If you have had a portion of your pay taken before you got it and sent to creditors, then your wages have been garnished. Usually, it takes a judge’s decision to enact Southgate wage garnishment. But that’s not always the case. In certain kinds of debt, like past due income tax debt, student loan debt, or unpaid child support, creditors don’t need legal approval to garnish your wages.

Stop Wage Garnishment Southgate

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.

By filing for bankruptcy, you can stop Southgate wage garnishment. This is because an automatic stay which bankruptcy puts in place makes it illegal for creditors to contact you directly or attempt collection in any way. Everything that the creditor wants to send to you has to be sent to your bankruptcy lawyer at Detroit Bankruptcy Law instead.
