How Bankruptcy Can Stop a Wage Garnishment

Did you know that your creditors can sue you for a debt and once the judgment has been entered, they can take that judgment to your employer and ask that your wages be garnished. How embarrassing. Bankruptcy can help stop wage garnishment because the bankruptcy court will enter what is called an automatic stay which stops all wage garnishments. Your creditor won’t be able to start the wage garnishments again because your debt will most likely be discharged in bankruptcy.

Did you also know that you might be eligible to request a return of garnished funds that were taken from you during the 90 days prior to bankruptcy filings.stop wage garnishment attorney
