Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy can stop a wage garnishment. If no money has been removed and they garnishment order has been issued, filing for either of these bankruptcy’s will stop any of your money being taken through a wage garnishment.
A more complicated garnishment is bank account. Once the money in a bank account has been frozen due to a garnishment order, the creditors will argue that the money belongs to them. To find out if we can get this money released, contact the Law Offices of Keith D. Collier immediately.
There is no warning when a creditor is looking into a wage or bank account garnishment. It will be sent directly to your bank and./or employer. After this, you will be notified. Most people who we talk to are in utter disbelief when their wages or bank funds are being garnished. With the majority of cases, it has been months to years since our client has heard from a creditor or their lawyer. A credit or their lawyer has to first get a judgement in State Court in order to get a wage or bank garnishment order. After this happens, it could be too late to do anything. You must be proactive and seek out legal counsel that will help you defend your money.
NOTE: At the Law Offices of Keith D. Collier, we have special payment plans for clients with wage or bank account garnishments. Please call our office before it's too late.
