Stop Wage Garnishment!

How Wage Garnishment Works

When a consumer falls behind on credit payments, creditors may take drastic actions to collect debts. One of the most personal and invasive ways in which a creditor can collect a debt is to garnish the debtor's wages. In order to do so, the creditor must obtain a court order that gives them the right to garnish a portion of your wages. Your employer must then withhold part of each of your paychecks and give it to your creditor as repayment.

According to the law, your creditor can withhold up to 25% of your disposable earnings per week, or the amount by which your disposable earnings exceed 40 times the federal minimum wage, whichever is lesser. This can be devastating to you financially, especially since you are already struggling to make your payments. At Langone & Fasullo, PLLC, we understand how stressful and terrifying it can be to have your wages garnished and we can help you bring this process to an end! Bankruptcy could help you not only to stop wage garnishment with an automatic stay but also could help you eliminate your debt for good so that you can get a fresh start and rebuild your credit.
