Practice Areas - Wage Garnishment
You have fallen behind on your payments, then you start losing your income to wage garnishments, making it even harder to pay off your debts. This two-edged sword needs to be stopped; you can get the help you need.
If you are considering whether you should file bankruptcy, you should know:
- Filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy will ensure that no new liens or garnishment activities begin, and will stop most pre-existing garnishments and liens, at least for the duration of the bankruptcy proceedings.
- Filing bankruptcy also stops creditor harassment, usually making it illegal for creditors to keep calling you.
- Filing bankruptcy also stops foreclosures and repossessions, at least for the duration of the proceedings. This might give you the little bit of extra time you need to get things in order financially.
