Wage Garnishment and Income Garnishment Lawyers
What is a garnishment? Why are they able to take money out of my paycheck and how can I put a stop to this? Don't they realize I'm already having a hard time paying my bills, and now I don't even have control over my own money?
The court can order your employer to withhold as much as 25% of your net paycheck to pay a creditor who has successfully obtained a judgement against you in a lawsuit. This is known as a wage garnishment. Usually, after obtaining the judgement a creditor will send a "15 day letter" asking for payment and threatening garnishment. Is it possible to put a stop to the garnishment and avoid the embarassment of involving your employer? Are they already taking money out of your paycheck to pay a garnishment? Yes it is possible to stop garnishments or to prevent your employer from finding out in the first place, but you must contact us.
