How Can An East Troy Bankruptcy Lawyer Stop Wage Garnishment?
There are two ways our East Troy bankruptcy lawyer, Shannon Wynn, can stop wage garnishment before the holidays. One way, is through the filing of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. If you qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, determined through a means test, wage garnishment will be avoided or cease the moment you file. All creditors will be notified that you have filed for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and that all debt collection attempts should immediately stop. The other way, is through a Chapter 128 Debt Amortization Plan. If you do not qualify for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can file a Chapter 128 Debt Amortization Plan. Chapter 128 can stop wage garnishments, stop accruing interest, and requires no court appearance for the majority of cases.
