Wage Garnishment And Bankruptcy

Have you been threatened with wage garnishment? Perhaps a judgment has already been issued against you and your wages are being garnished. You can keep your paychecks out of the hands of your creditors by filing bankruptcy. At the Hunter Law Firm, P.A., our attorneys have decades of experience stopping wage garnishment. Let us help you.

Act Now To Keep Your Next Paycheck

Recovering wages that have already been taken from you by creditors is not possible, so we encourage you to act now so you can keep your next paycheck. The sooner you contact our lawyers, the sooner we can take the steps necessary to stop wage garnishment. Even if your next payday is just a day or two away, you should still contact us. We may be able to file an emergency bankruptcy on your behalf.

An Automatic Stay Stops Wage Garnishment

One of the first things that happens when you file bankruptcy is that an automatic stay goes into effect. This stay prevents creditors from taking any action against you, including wage garnishment. Your paycheck must remain intact.

However, it is important to understand that the automatic stay is designed merely to give you breathing room while you continue through the bankruptcy process. It is not a permanent solution in and of itself. Our Jonesboro garnishment attorneys will review your situation to determine whether you should file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. We will make a recommendation based on your specific circumstances and we will guide you down the path toward a full recovery from your debt problems. We want to help you use bankruptcy not just to stop wage garnishment now, but to create a positive financial future.
