Prevent Wage Garnishment by Filing Bankruptcy in Columbus Ohio

Getting your wages garnished can be devastating.  When 25% of your wages are taking out of your pay before your money is deposited into your bank account or your paycheck is issued, everyday living can become a struggle.  Once the wage garnishment starts, you may not have enough money left over at the end of the month to pay for rent, utilities, and insurance.  If this is the case, filing bankruptcy may be the best option for you.

Filing bankruptcy will stop a wage garnishment by Federal law.  Filing bankruptcy will eliminate the debt owed from the lawsuit along with most of your other debts such as credit cards, medical bills, personal loans, utility bills, and items sent to third-party collections.  Filing bankruptcy will also stop a foreclosure, sheriff sale, vehicle repossession, and utility disconnection.  Filing bankruptcy can even help you get your driver’s license back from suspension, get financed for a car, or get approved for an apartment.

How Much Money Can The Creditor Garnish Out of My Paycheck?

In Ohio, your wages can be garnished up to 25%.  That means ¼ of your income is gone once the creditor garnishes your wages.

Will Filing Bankruptcy Stop the Wage Garnishment?

Yes, filing bankruptcy will stop the wage garnishment.  As soon as you file your bankruptcy petition, legal documentation will be sent to the necessary parties and the wage garnishment will stop immediately.  Filing bankruptcy will stop a lawsuit from beginning or continuing.  Filing bankruptcy will prevent your wages from being garnished and will stop the garnishment if money is already being taken away for you.
