Wage garnishment is the legal procedure by which a company recovers money it is owed by taking it directly from the debtor’s paycheck. A garnishment can hinder your ability to pay for necessities, such as putting gas in the car and food on the table. Our experienced Richmond bankruptcy lawyer can help to put that money back in your bank accounts.
If you have defaulted on a loan your creditor can potentially file a lawsuit against you in order to recover the debt that you owe. If you lose the court case and do not come to a repayment arrangement with your creditor, the creditor may attempt to garnish your wages.
Most states have laws that only allow a creditor to garnish your wages through a court order. The majority of creditors use wage garnishment as a last ditch effort to collect on a debt owed, however some creditors are more aggressive than others.
