How can I stop a wage garnishment right away?

Is a creditor filing a lawsuit against you? In this case, a court can decide if a part of your paycheck should be taken to pay back creditors over time.

However, wage garnishment can still happen even without a court order. For debts like overdue income tax, unpaid child support, or student loan debt, creditors can arrange for wage garnishment without ever going to court.

Wage garnishment can cause:

  1. Embarrassment (your employer is involved in your financial troubles).
  2. Severe financial troubles (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.

We can help you stop wage garnishment by assisting you in filing for bankruptcy. Bankruptcy begins an automatic stay, and creditors are not allowed to try to collect your debts during an automatic stay.
