Bank Account Garnishment
Financial problems and unpaid bills can cause untold anxiety and stress. As unpaid bills continue to accumulate, you will probably find that your creditors are taking increasingly stronger actions against you. Phone calls and letters lead to lawsuits. Lawsuits lead to judgments. Finally, judgments lead to bank account garnishment.
Bank account garnishments can happen without much warning and can create huge problems in your life. After a bank garnishment, any checks you have written can be returned for insufficient funds. As a result, your already bleak financial situation will only get worse.
How Does Bankruptcy End Bank Account Garnishment?
When you file for bankruptcy, your creditors must end all of their efforts to collect your debts. This is known as the automatic stay. The automatic stay provides immediate relief to people in financial distress. The automatic stay ends bank garnishments, lawsuits, liens, levies, foreclosure, repossession, and harassing phone calls and letters.
