You should consider filing for bankruptcy immediately if you have defaulted on any type of loan or credit cards and received a letter from your employer stating your wages will be garnished. When this occurs, the court will issue an order instructing your employer to withhold a percentage of your wages and send it directly to the creditor until the creditor is paid in full. If you did not receive proper notice and your wages are already being garnished, we can go to court and stop your wage garnishment.
Filing for bankruptcy can eliminate or reduce the percentage owed on your wage garnishment. If you qualify for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, you can also eliminate all of your debts (excluding student loans and child support).
