How to Stop Wage Garnishment

A wage garnishment is a court order wherein your creditors are able to "garnish" or withdraw a portion of your paycheck to pay for the debt you owe them. Wage garnishes are ordered only by a court. Once the creditor files the order to the court, they are allowed to begin garnishing your wages. To be protected and even reimbursed before the order is approved, you need to work with a bankruptcy attorney.

At Bizar & Doyle, we have experience in the areas of bankruptcy and how to protect you from wage garnishments. Creditors can be tough to deal with, especially when you aren't educated in law. Luckily a bankruptcy lawyer within our company is trained and will strive to maintain your rights and happiness.

Answers to a Wage Garnishment

Filing for a bankruptcy with a skilled bankruptcy attorney automatically stops any wage garnishment. Not all wage deductions are "wage garnishments", and it is important to know the difference. Wage garnishments refer to a court order to pay for old debts those creditors or collection agencies are demanding. A wage deduction cannot be stopped by filing for bankruptcy, and these include such things as ongoing child support. The law provides that these deductions continue.

With one of our lawyers, you are able to see how your wages can remain intact and if you qualify for a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. The difference between the two could determine your future, and working with someone who is trained in the law concerning bankruptcy is vital. Working with our team, you may even have the chance to get reimbursed for the wages that were garnished. You have to act fast, though, and we are ready to see how we can help you.

Contact a bankruptcy lawyer from our firm if you or a loved one is experiencing or worried about wage garnishment, or want to find out more about bankruptcy.
