How Does Bankruptcy Stop Wage Garnishment?
When you file bankruptcy, an automatic stay goes into place. This sends a message to your creditors. It tells them to stop all actions against you, including wage garnishment.Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 are effective in stopping payroll garnishment.
You want to stop wage garnishment. More importantly, you want to resolve the problem that caused this in the first place. You want to overcome your debt. This is what bankruptcy is designed to do. We are committed to helping you create a future that is free of the financial problems that you are currently dealing with. We want to help you get a fresh start.
Timing is Critical
Yes, bankruptcy is a major decision. However, there are rarely any alternatives that are as effective when it comes to helping people overcome debt. While we want you to understand the options available, we also encourage you to take action as soon as possible. The sooner you act, the more opportunities that may be available to you.
The sooner you act, the sooner we can stop the wage garnishment. Your employer is legally obligated to make the garnishment happen when they’ve been served with notice. However, by filing bankruptcy at least two days prior to payday, we can
see that your paycheck goes where it’s supposed to go: to you.
