Can I Stop My Wages From Being Garnished After Bankruptcy?
Filing a bankruptcy creates what is called an “automatic stay.” This stay puts a hold on all creditors from any further collection efforts, including any creditor garnishing your wages. Once your bankruptcy is filed, Attorneys Mart and Evan Swenson and their staff will notify the garnishing creditor that your case has been filed. For many clients, we are even able to recoup some of the garnishment funds that have already occurred.
KNOW YOUR OPTIONS…KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!
The Swenson Law Group will properly prepare and file your bankruptcy papers and handle all your creditor wage garnishment issues. Attorneys Mart and Evan Swenson have over 35 years of combined experience, which matters when making sure all your options have been reviewed. It is the Swenson Law Group’s goal to obtain the best outcome possible on your behalf.
