Stop Wage Garnishments
A wage garnishment is one of the most aggressive measures a creditor can take to recover a debt. While a creditor may have a legal right to pursue a wage garnishment, a debtor also has rights. If your wages have been garnished and you are not able to pay your bills, bankruptcy may be the solution you have been seeking.
Is Bankruptcy Right for Me?
The best way to answer that question is to speak with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer who can advise you of your rights and help explain the bankruptcy process to you. Key questions your attorney should ask include:
- Are you eligible for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy?
- Is a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy best for your situation?
- Are you a good candidate for bankruptcy?

Will Bankruptcy Put a Stop to My Wage Garnishment?
Most types of wage garnishments can be stopped through bankruptcy. If we are retained to handle your case, we can file a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy on your behalf. Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy result in an automatic stay. The automatic stay prevents most creditors from taking further collection activity — including a wage garnishment.
