When Does Wage Garnishment Stop?
Filing bankruptcy sets an automatic stay in motion. This puts an immediate stop to foreclosure, trustee sale, repossessions and levies on bank accounts. It also stops the garnishment of wages. Our law firm informs the sheriff and plaintiffs of the bankruptcy as soon as it is filed to stop all wage garnishments. If you file early enough and the sheriff’s department is currently holding funds, the funds may be returned upon the bankruptcy filing.
Failing To Stop Wage Garnishments
Although bankruptcy is meant to stop wage garnishments, sometimes the sheriff’s department or creditors will ignore the automatic stay. The bankruptcy attorneys of Gumm & Green, LLP, will work with you to seek relief from these actions. We will hold creditors accountable for following the bankruptcy laws, and may take them to court in order to protect your rights. This protects your current income and gives you the chance to get a fresh financial start.
