Stopping Wage Garnishment In Georgia

If you are struggling with debt, having money taken out of your paycheck can be a devastating setback. For many Georgians, wage garnishment is a hard reality. Filing for bankruptcy can make it stop.

At King & King bankruptcy attorneys, we have over 30 years of experience helping people through the bankruptcy process. Our knowledgeable attorneys are here to get you the fresh start you need.

You Can Stop Wage Garnishment Today
If you are facing creditor actions like wage garnishment and bank account levies, King & King can help. If you are behind on your loan, medical, or credit card payments, creditors may pursue a lawsuit against you. If successful, they will have the legal right to take up to 25 percent of your paycheck. This is a devastating way to pay a debt.  Also, creditors who have obtained a judgment against you may take funds out of your checking or savings account.

Filing for bankruptcy creates an "automatic stay," an action that stops debt collectors from taking action against you. King & King makes the "automatic stay” work for you and helps you keep every dollar of your paycheck and your bank account. Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy will protect you from wage garnishment and other creditor actions. Our attorneys will work with you to help you decide the best debt relief plan.

If you are ready to stop wage garnishment and get out of debt, we are here to help. Contact King & King today at 404-524-6400 to schedule a free consultation with an experienced lawyer.
