Will filing bankruptcy stop creditors from garnishing my wages?
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.
