Posted on Friday, March 6th, 2015 at 2:31 pm
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.

When you work with a good Bankruptcy Lawyer, they will quickly assess your financial circumstances and decide which type of bankruptcy will be best for you and your family. Once they file a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, the wage garnishment will stop immediately.
