How Bankruptcy Can Help You

All chapters of bankruptcy can stop wage garnishment. In fact, filing for bankruptcy is the most common way to stop wage garnishment. Bankruptcy does this by triggering an automatic stay that stops collection activities during the bankruptcy process. Except for garnishments to satisfy domestic support obligations, your creditors will no longer be allowed to garnish your wages.

The care and concern you both showed us through this difficult time, as well as the respectful way you handled our case, is greatly appreciated.

Your expertise and patience made this difficult and trying time for our family immeasurably more bearable.

The automatic stay also prevents lien holders or lenders from repossessing property, seizing collateral, or filing or foreclosing on liens. Under normal circumstances outside of bankruptcy, if you have a secured debt, such as a mortgage or car loan, the lien holder or lender has the right to repossess the collateral if you are no longer making the loan payments. The lender or lien holder takes the property and sells it to recover their financial losses. However, during the bankruptcy process, creditors are not allowed to do this unless they obtain the bankruptcy judge's permission using a special legal tool called a motion for relief from the automatic stay and this takes time.
