What options are available to halt wage garnishments?
If you fail to keep up with payments, creditors can garnish up to 25% of
your wages every pay period to repay the debts you owe. This can not only
disrupt your other debt payments, but strip you of the necessary financial
support you and your family need.
There are several main ways to put an end to wage garnishments:
The most effective and immediate option is
filing for bankruptcy. However, this option is not right for every individual, which is why
it is crucial to discuss your case with a knowledgeable legal professional
prior to taking any action.
When you do file for bankruptcy, an
automatic stay is put into place. This immediately requires creditors and debt collectors
to stop all action against a consumer, including wage garnishments. If
you file for Chapter 13, you will need to create a repayment plan that
will satisfy creditors. While Chapter 7 bankruptcy does not involve a
repayment plan, you will be required to liquidate any non-exempt assets
to pay off remaining debts to your creditors.
