Are Your Creditors Threatening To Garnish Your Wages?

Your creditors cannot garnish your wages until they have a judgment against you. Once they have a judgment, they can give you notice and then begin garnishing your wages.

If your creditors are threatening you with wage garnishment without having gotten a judgment, you may have a claim against them under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or the Wisconsin Consumer Act.

You have to be careful in these cases, however, as your creditors may have obtained a default judgment without you knowing a lawsuit was even filed. We will take a close look at your case to see if you have any legal recourse.

Stopping Wage Garnishment Through Bankruptcy

The moment you file for bankruptcy, you will receive an automatic stay, which puts an end to all wage garnishment. If your creditors have already started to garnish your wages, we may be able to get back anything over $600 that was taken in the 90 days prior to your filing. If they start the process after you file, we can get back all your money.
