My wages are being garnished.

If you owe money as the result of a lawsuit, your wages may be garnished or your bank account may be levied by the creditor.

Many types of garnishments can be stopped by filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, including:

  • Income taxes – the IRS (federal) and FTB (state)
  • Student loans
  • Lawsuit judgments (for example, for credit card or medical debts)

In fact, we may be able to have some of the recently garnished funds returned to you. This is why it is so important to seek legal assistance as soon as your wage garnishment starts or your bank account is levied or frozen by the Sheriff.

Everyone’s situation is different, which is why our office offers a free personal consultation with an attorney. That way we can analyze your situation and advise you of the best way to save your property and protect your income.
