Can Bankruptcy Stop A Job Garnishment And Bank Garnishment?
When you are struggling with debt and unable to repay your creditors, they can garnish your paycheck or garnish your bank account in order to collect money. Unfortunately, this can make repaying your debts even harder, since you will have less money coming in.
One of the advantages of filing bankruptcy is that it puts an automatic stay in place that will immediately stop all garnishment attempts. At Gingold & Gingold LLC, our attorneys can help you figure out the best options for stopping creditors, holding on to your wages and wiping out your debts.
We serve clients throughout the Atlanta metro area, with offices in Atlanta, Cumming, Dallas, Douglasville and Duluth, call us at (404) 685-8800 for help.
Take Action Before It's Too Late
Unfortunately, many people wait to file bankruptcy because they want to make a good faith effort to pay off their debts. While you may find out in advance of payday that your creditors garnished a portion of your wages, you may not know if they have frozen your bank account until you are locked out of your bank account or your bill payments bounce.
Our lawyers — Ira D. Gingold, who has been a bankruptcy lawyer since 1971 and Court-appointed Bankruptcy Trustee from 1971-2013, and Jamie L. Gingold, who has been practicing law since 2001 in the areas of bankruptcy, business and real estate law — understand what is at stake for you. They will sit down with you and figure out whether filing Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is the best choice for you to protect your income.
