What You Can Do About Wage Garnishment

If your wages are being garnished, you can choose from a number of different avenues for relief. Our attorneys will help you choose the strategy that best fits your situation:

  • Filing for Bankruptcy*: both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy will immediately halt/stop any further wage garnishment (this does not include wage deductions for ongoing child or spousal support obligations). Bankruptcy will also halt creditor harassment, car repossession and any other debt collection efforts.
  • Filing a Motion for Installment Payment: this motion essentially involves asking the court to set up a reasonable payment plan which is often less per month than the creditor-imposed garnishment.
  • Negotiating With Creditors: your creditors know you have the power to file for bankruptcy or file a Motion for Installment Payments. In an effort to avoid either of those outcomes, they are often willing to negotiate better terms. We are known as credible, trustworthy attorneys, and creditors are often willing to engage us in productive negotiations.
