Stop Wage Garnishments – Bankruptcy Help

Stop Wage Garnishments

Bankruptcy Help with Wage Garnishments:

If you have wage garnishments,  I can help to stop wage garnishments by filing bankruptcy.

  • When wages are garnished 90 days prior or on the 90th day of your bankruptcy filing date, these funds may be due back to the Debtor.  
  • However, the key is the actual date of the transfer.    One court held that the date of the Writ of Garnishment is the key date.  
  •  A judgment creditor obtains a prior right which cannot be defeated except by failing to obtain his/her judgment.

The date is not the date that the transfer of the debtor moneys took place but the date the Writ of Garnishment was issued.

In a case, the Writ of Garnishment was 91 day before the debtor’s bankruptcy filing.   Because the petition was filed one day too late, the debtor lost an opportunity to recoup over $6,000 in garnished wages.

Timing of filing of your Bankruptcy Petition has serious implications.   It is for this and many reasons. you need to obtain a consultation with a bankruptcy lawyer that specializes in Consumer Bankruptcy Law.
