How Filing For Bankruptcy Can Stop Wage Garnishment

If you are behind on your bills, you may be at risk of having your wages garnished. At Jimmy E. McElroy & Associates, we have seen firsthand the devastating effects wage garnishment can have on a family that is already struggling with personal debt.

If your wages are being garnished, there is something you can do to regain control of your earnings. Contact a knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney for advice.

Sending A Message To Creditors

Upon filing for bankruptcy, your attorney will send notices to your employer and creditors that will cease wage garnishment.

By filing for bankruptcy, you send a message to the creditors. You are telling them that they must stop taking your hard-earned money and that they can no longer harass you.

Sometimes it takes time for the notices to reach the proper parties, so money might continue to be taken from your paycheck for a period of time. However, if your wages are garnished after the bankruptcy filing, that money must be returned to you.
