What Is Wage Garnishment?
A wage garnishment is a tool used by creditors to enforce a judgment obtained against you in court. Creditors use law enforcement (typically the sheriff’s office) to issue an order to your employer to turn over a portion of your pay until the judgment is satisfied.
Attorneys For Wage Garnishment
Most debt collectors will take any measure to collect the debt that you owe. Wage garnishment is one of the most harmful tactics taken to collect on overdue payments. Garnished wages can substantially affect your finances and they have the potential to cause even greater damage to your financial future. By having your wages garnished, the amount of money you take home will be minimal.
If creditors are threatening to garnish your wages, we encourage you to call Smith and Messina, LLP, for the legal assistance you need. We can help clients stop a wage garnishment by filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. An automatic stay will immediately be set in place, which will require the wage garnishment to end. Your creditor will no longer be able to withdraw your money.
