Bankruptcy Stops Wage Garnishment

Bankruptcy automatically and immediately stops wage garnishment. If you file for bankruptcy today, you can stop your wages from being garnished on your next payday.

At the Law Office of Paul R. Idlas, I help people stop wage garnishment and other creditor actions by filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. I serve clients in Lake County and throughout the surrounding areas in Illinois.

An Effective Solution For Stopping Wage Garnishment

In Illinois, a creditor may garnish up to 15 percent of your gross wages if it obtains a legal judgment against you. This is a devastating turn of events for someone who is already struggling financially.

If you face creditor actions like wage garnishment, what are your options?

  • You can pay the full judgment, which may not be possible.
  • You can try to work out a debt settlement with your creditor, which is also not likely to work.
  • You can do nothing, and watch your take-home pay decrease significantly, making it even more difficult to keep up with other debt payments.
  • You can stop it completely by filing for bankruptcy.

An experienced attorney can help you understand your rights and options under bankruptcy law.
