Stop Job Garnishment Through Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy sign

Debt is a very difficult situation for people to find themselves in. When people find themselves trapped in extreme debt, there are often unexpected and severe consequences that come down the pike. One of these is known as job garnishment, where creditors can garnish your paycheck – withhold a portion of your earnings to repay creditors. This means that whether you agree to it or not, your hard-earned money is being automatically taken from you to pay debts that you owe. Garnishment is a severe consequence for those who are severely in debt, and it is a means for creditors to guarantee that they will be paid. Of course, this can make repaying debts even more challenging because you will have less money coming in. Filing bankruptcy puts an automatic stay in place that will immediately stop all garnishment attempts.

An automatic stay immediately protects you from harassment by creditors and prevents them from taking any collection activity against you during your bankruptcy case. Whenever you file for bankruptcy, you will be required to provide to the court a list of your debts with your creditors and their addresses. Working with a bankruptcy attorney is highly beneficial as your attorney will notify each creditor that you have filed for bankruptcy. The contact between the attorney and the creditors will acknowledge that you have filed for bankruptcy and that they must then take steps to suspend the job garnishment against your wages.

It is highly encouraged that you take action before it is too late. Many people choose to ignore their debts until they become so overwhelming that they do not know what to do, and they only find out that their wages are being garnished when they are locked out of their bank accounts or that their paycheck is significantly smaller. Others simply try to make good on their debts by paying them off in very small amounts, yet the creditors show little patience and mercy and will garnish their wages anyway.

At Gingold & Gingold, LLC, we can help you! We will work with you to determine the best options for your debt situations. Through filing for bankruptcy, we will make sure that an automatic stay is put in place to stop harassment and all garnishment attempts by creditors. Filing for bankruptcy may seem like a scary situation, but severe debt that is pursued by relentless creditors is much worse. Contact Gingold & Gingold, LLC, today so that we can help you figure out the best options for holding on to your wages and wiping out your debts.

They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

Mr. Gingold was recommended by an attorney I had worked with previously. I met with Ira Gingold to discuss credit issues. He went over each specific issue thoroughly. He advised me of the potential outcomes. He did all this in one meeting for a very reasonable price. When we finished I was confident in moving forward with a resolution. He definitely wants to help people take the appropriate course of action for their circumstance.

Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

Sherard W.

I cannot say enough about this law firm. From the initial consultation to our discharge, the entire office kept me updated with every step of the entire process. I came to the Gingold after a bad experience with another law firm. Ira and Jamie immediately began treating me like family through this experience. In the end, they assisted with eliminating many debts including my 2nd mortgage. I cannot say enough about the experience and knowledge that Ira brought to the table from the office visits to the court time. Thank you very much for helping me through this tough time. Thank you.
