Stop Wage Garnishment
Trying to manage exorbitant credit card balances, medical bills or other forms of debt is always stressful. However, when creditors bring additional legal action to squeeze money from you through wage garnishment or bank account seizures, making ends meet is more difficult. You can stop wage garnishment by filing for bankruptcy.
Having income taken out of your paycheck can make it seemingly impossible to put gas in the car, pay for groceries and keep a roof over your head. If you are facing wage garnishment, it is critical for you to contact a knowledgeable Cincinnati bankruptcy lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights.
If you have unpaid civil court judgments against you, you are at risk of wage garnishment or having your bank account seized. It is also possible for creditors to file liens against property and non-retirement accounts.
Receiving a Wage Garnishment Notice
In order to garnish your wages, a creditor must provide you with 15 days’ notice of the garnishment action. The attachment of your bank account, brokerage account or other non-retirement financial assets can occur without notice.
If you have received a wage garnishment notice, speak with one of our Cincinnati area bankruptcy attorneys as soon as possible. By filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, we can stop both wage and bank account garnishment actions, foreclosure and repossession of personal property. And by filing for bankruptcy, all creditor harassment must stop. You get the financial breathing room you need to rebuild your financial health.
