Our Atlanta Attorneys can Stop Wage Garnishment
If your income is garnished in Atlanta, the effects can be paralyzing. In Atlanta, Georgia, a judgment creditor can garnish your wages up to 25% of your disposable income, or the income you receive after paying taxes, medical insurance, and 401k savings. The ability to pay necessary expenses such as housing, food, and clothing are often directly impacted.
Stop Wage Garnishment in Atlanta and File Bankruptcy
Fortunately, filing bankruptcy immediately stops garnishment in Atlanta and often discharges the amount owed pursuant to the judgment. Plus, any money that was taken from you through wage garnishment in the three months prior to filing bankruptcy can be recovered. So with either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, you can stop the garnishment in Atlanta in its tracks and get back the money that was taken from you.
Non Dischargeable Wage Garnishments in Atlanta
If you are being garnished for child support, alimony, or student loans, these debts are non-dischargeable. While bankruptcy will effectively stop the wage garnishment, you are still required to pay these debts back.
