How bankruptcy can help you if a creditor is garnishing your paycheck

DRAFT-Sadly, many times our clients don’t call us until after they’ve noticed a dramatic decrease in their paycheck caused by a creditor garnishing their paycheck. A garnishment occurs when a creditor gets the legal power to force your employer to send them a portion of your paycheck to pay your debt. This WTF moment is immediately followed with panic and dread. The money that is desperately needed to take care of you and your family is now being taken by your creditor. If times were tough before, how can you possibly survive on up to 25% less? However there is a way to fight back.

Filing bankruptcy stops garnishments!

As soon as the creditor knows that you have filed bankruptcy, the garnishment must stop. In some limited cases, we might be able to get some of your money back, but it’s dependent on how soon we file your case. Once your debts have been discharged through bankruptcy, that obligation is wiped out. FOREVER.
If your wages have been garnished, every day you do nothing could be costing you hundreds of dollars. To schedule your free consultation call us seven days a week, from 9am and 10pm, at 305-663-3281 or email We look forward to helping in any way we can.
