IF YOU ARE BEING GARNISHED, YOU CAN MAKE IT STOP NOW!
Once garnishment begins, it rarely ends quickly. First, a creditor sues you and successfully gets a writ of garnishment against you. Then, other creditors realize that you are being garnished, and they want their fair share too. So, they start suing you and wait in line for their turn to garnish you once the first creditor has had its 90 days of payments. It is a vicious cycle that cannot be stopped unless you file bankruptcy.
IN MANY CASES, YOU CAN GET YOUR GARNISHED FUNDS BACK:
If you are currently being garnished, or were garnished within the past 90 days, our firm may be able to help you file an emergency bankruptcy case to stop the garnishment. We may also be able to recover these garnished funds from the creditor. We charge $250 for this service.
FUNDS GARNISHED AFTER FILING BANKRUPCTY ARE REFUNDABLE: If you filed for bankruptcy and were garnished after you filed, you may be entitled to a refund of that money because it was taken after you filed for bankruptcy. You should alert your payroll department that you filed for bankruptcy, and provide them with the notice of bankruptcy so that they can issue you a refund.
Every situation is different, and you should consult with a lawyer if you think bankruptcy or other debt negotiation might be right for you.
