How can I stop a wage garnishment right away?

Creditors may decide to file a lawsuit against you over your debts, and if they do, a judge can order to have your wages garnished. When your wages are garnished, a part of your pay is subtracted to pay back a creditor until your debt is settled.

However, wages can also be garnished without a judge’s order in some scenarios. If you have unpaid child support, overdue income tax debt, or student loan debt, your wages can be garnished with a judge ever getting involved.

Wage garnishment can cause:

  1. Embarrassment (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.

With our expert bankruptcy attorneys by your side, we can stop wage garnishment by filing for the appropriate chapter of bankruptcy Redford. This will activate an automatic stay which makes any collection attempts by creditors illegal until your bankruptcy ends.
