If you have received notice that a creditor is suing for the right to garnish your wages, or if they have already begun to deduct money from your paycheck, it is time to seriously consider your options in bankruptcy. Many people find themselves facing wage garnishment when they were already having trouble paying all their monthly bills. So, when one of your creditors begins to take money straight from your paycheck, you may find yourself in worse financial distress than before.
Protecting Your Paycheck From Creditors
At Lawrence & Associates, we help clients obtain debt relief through Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. As part of this process, our firm can help you deal with threatened or realized wage garnishment issues. When you work with our firm, we will quickly assess your financial circumstances and decide which type of bankruptcy will be best for you and your family. Once we file a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, the wage garnishment will stop immediately.

Did You Know?
- Once a creditor has secured a ruling to garnish your wages, they can often take up to 25 percent of your income per month, until the debt is repaid in full.
- Even if a creditor has already begun to garnish your wages, there may be legal remedies to reclaim the money — but it is nearly impossible to achieve without a qualified lawyer on your side.
Regardless of where you are in the garnishment process, time is always of the essence. Your best chance to stop a creditor from taking your income is to contact Lawrence & Associates right away.
