Wage garnishments can be a huge blow to your monthly income and make it difficult to support yourself or your family. A good Joliet, Plainfield, or Will County bankruptcy attorney can stop creditors from garnishing your wages. Often, a wage garnishment by one creditor leads to a wage garnishment by another. The situation is like a house of cards that comes toppling down. In Will County and Joliet, garnishments can be a huge percentage of your paycheck and can often take all of the money in your bank account.
If you are facing wage garnishment, you do have options. Generally, filing for bankruptcy will stop wage garnishment. However, you must act quickly. The filing must be done before your next paycheck. If this is not possible, you may be able to collect the money that was taken out of your check. Call us immediately to discuss your options.
