How Do You Stop a Wage Garnishment?
Wage garnishments, when done properly, may only be stopped through two methods: bankruptcy and the paying in full of the debt and all associated fees and charges. The primary legal remedy is filing for bankruptcy protection. Personal bankruptcy has a powerful tool built into it called an automatic stay. An automatic stay immediately halts all collection activities, including wage garnishments upon the filing of your bankruptcy paperwork.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy can both help you put a stop to the garnishment of your wages. These chapters of bankruptcy also allow you to deal with the root cause of your garnishment, overwhelming debt.
