Avoiding Wage Garnishment

If your wages are being garnished or there is an existing garnish ruling against you, we can definitely help you through bankruptcy.

Once a creditor has obtained a judgment against you for debts owed, they may pursue wage garnishment to recover any money owed. Under state law, collectors can garnish up to 25 percent of your wages. Having your wages garnished can create a grueling and tight financial situation even worse. At The Law Offices of Ronald I. Chorches, our attorneys can help you protect your income with various options for debt relief.

Stop Wage Garnishment With Bankruptcy

The most efficient way to prevent or stop a wage garnishment ruling is by filing bankruptcy. Chapter 7 allows you to liquidate money owed and start over completely, while Chapter 13 allows you to consolidate debt and make one affordable monthly payment. Filing for bankruptcy is useful in ceasing wage garnishment if you:

  • fall behind on credit card or loan payments
  • owe income taxes
  • need to pay child support
  • default on student loans

Our lawyers can help you determine the best avenue for your situation.

Other Options To Avoid Garnishment

Based on your unique circumstances and obligations, you may be able to keep more of your paycheck with other various debt relief alternatives.
