How can I stop a wage garnishment right away?

If your creditor files a lawsuit against you, it’s up to the courts whether or not a portion of your salary is taken to pay back creditors.

But, not all wage garnishment needs a court order. There are debts, like student loan debt, overdue income tax, or unpaid child support, where wage garnishment can be enacted without a judge’s order.

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.

If you want to stop wage garnishment, we can help by helping you file for bankruptcy. This will enact an automatic stay which prevents creditors from collecting throughout your bankruptcy period.
