Stopping Wage Garnishment in Southern California
Collectors have no right to order a wage garnishment from your employer until a judgment has been rendered against you in court. Even then, there are ways to interrupt deductions from your paychecks.
When threatened with wage garnishment, an answer to the lawsuit will delay the collection process. If wage garnishment has already begun, filing a Claim of Exemptions can demonstrate that all of your current income is crucial for your family’s necessities. Our bankruptcy attorney at LA Legal Law Firm can also help submit a financial statement that itemizes your income and expenses.
In such cases, it may also be time to consider bankruptcy. The automatic stay issued with a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 filing will immediately stop wage garnishment in California. Of course, bankruptcy will always have consequences. But it may be a better option if such actions are being taken against you. When bankruptcy is unavoidable, filing allows you to begin rebuilding your credit sooner.
