Bankruptcy Can Stop Garnishment Of Your Wages

If a creditor has obtained a judgment against you for a debt you owe, that creditor can garnish your wages to collect it. When money is already tight, a wage garnishment will make an already difficult financial situation even worse. If you and your family are suffering because a creditor is taking money you can't afford to lose, filing for bankruptcy might provide the needed relief.

Under the Bankruptcy Code, when a bankruptcy petition is filed, all collection activity must stop. This includes most wage garnishments. Some wage garnishments, such as those executed to collect child and spousal support, can continue.
