Stop Wage Garnishment

When financial troubles rain down, it pours. The bills keep coming, the creditors keep calling. Then, they start to garnish your wages, making it even more difficult for you to make ends meet. Will this ever end?

It can. In fact, the moment you file for bankruptcy, an "automatic stay" goes into effect that stops wage garnishment and most creditor actions against you. It may also be possible to recover the wages that creditors garnished from you in the 90 days before you filed for bankruptcy.

Once your wages have been garnished, filing for bankruptcy becomes more urgent. As your bankruptcy attorney, I will act immediately to get your money back and start you down a better path.

A Better Future Starts Today: Preferential Garnishments

While wage garnishment is legal, U.S. bankruptcy law may allow you to recover your lost wages in the following circumstances:

  • You have filed for bankruptcy
  • Your wages were garnished in the 90 days before you filed for bankruptcy
  • Your creditor garnished at least $600 from you in those 90 days

If your creditor(s) are garnishing your wages, I know very well that you don't have enough money to file bankruptcy and pay for a lawyer. If we can recover these lost wages (called "preferential garnishments"), you can use that money to help you pay for the bankruptcy itself and start paving the path toward a better tomorrow.
