Can My Wage Garnishment Be Stopped By Filing Bankruptcy?

If your wages are being garnished or if you are being threatened with a wage garnishment, you may feel like your situation just went from bad to worse. If you are unable to pay your bills on your full salary, you most likely cannot afford to have your wages garnished.

Wage garnishments are when a creditor of yours takes money out of your paycheck without your voluntary approval. Now, you can actually stop the garnishment through a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. There are even some situations where we can get money that's been paid to a creditor through a garnishment back to you. Time is a factor, so don’t wait.
