Stop Wage and Bank Garnishments
West Orange, New Jersey Bankruptcy Attorney
Losing money out of every paycheck can leave you unable to pay for other necessary expenses such as rent, a mortgage payment, or keep up with your other bills. When a creditor has a judgment against you, they may take a percentage of your wages. As you already know, wage garnishment only makes it more difficult to pay your bills. If you are suffering from overwhelming debt and are unable to pay your bills, you may be able to stop wage garnishment through Chapter 7 bankruptcy. At Stanziale & Stanziale, P.C., we have significant experience representing individuals suffering the difficulties of a wage garnishment.
Wage garnishment can affect your ability to pay a mortgage, rent or buy groceries and it only makes repaying your debt more difficult. You have the right to stop wage and bank garnishment. Contact us today for more information.
Bankruptcy can stop wage and bank garnishment because it discharges you from your debt obligations. For many people, bankruptcy is a way to manage overwhelming debt caused by an unforeseeable event such as a job loss or a serious injury. We can help you explore all of your options and any alternatives available to you to stop wage and bank garnishments and to secure your financial future.
Anytime a creditor obtains a judgment against you, it can order the court to garnish your wages until the amount you owe is satisfied. Often people are surprised to find that their wages are being garnished because they are not given notice. While only a percentage of wages can be taken, bank account garnishments have no limit up to the amount of the judgment. Bankruptcy is an option to stop wage and bank garnishments and restore your financial security.
We can take the following action on your behalf:
- Stop creditors from garnishing your wages
