Will filing bankruptcy stop creditors from garnishing my wages?

December 28, 2009

When you file for bankruptcy, an automatic stay is put in place that stops all debt collection proceedings against you. Under bankruptcy laws, wage garnishment is considered a collection proceeding. Therefore, when you file for bankruptcy, all wage garnishments against you will stop – including IRS wage garnishments.

If your wages are being garnished and you are considering filing for bankruptcy, contact the attorneys of Fears | Nachawati today for free legal advice. To receive free legal assistance from a Texas bankruptcy lawyer, email us or phone us toll free at 1.866.705.7584.
