Wage Garnishment

Detroit Wage Garnishment Lawyer

Your creditors have a right to demand payment on your loans, and unless you resolve your debts by filing for bankruptcy, you will continue to be liable for the amounts you owe. When you have gone into default on a loan, the creditor can go to court with a petition to have your wages garnished to satisfy the outstanding balance, and if the request is granted you may lose up to 25% of your weekly paycheck. If you were already having difficulty keeping up with your debts, you cannot afford to see your income reduced by any amount and you must take action now to turn the situation around.

How To Stop A Wage Garnishment

Declaring bankruptcy under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 is one of the most effective solutions to the problems you currently face. As soon as you file your petition, you will receive the legal protection of an automatic stay, and your creditors will be barred from garnishing your wages and making repossessions. At the conclusion of your bankruptcy, discharging your debt will free you from liability to pay and prohibit creditors from taking any further action to recover debts from you.
