Wages Garnishment Lawyer in New York

Are you wages being garnished?

Wage garnishment is a legal action taken by a creditor to recover money that is owed.  It involves the filing of a lawsuit by the lender against the person that has defaulted on the loan.  If the court renders a judgment against the debtor, a portion of the debtor's wages can be automatically taken and sent to the creditor.  A debt collection agency that has been unsuccessful in collecting on a debt purchased from a lending entity can also file a lawsuit against the debtor. 

Depending on the circumstances, property can also be garnished.  The court will attach a lien to the property and when it is sold, the money will be sent to the lender.   Wage garnishment typically occurs when money is owed for taxes or child support, but can also include credit card and other forms of debt.

A New York bankruptcy attorney should be contacted at once if you are facing possible wage garnishment, or money is already being taken from your paycheck to repay a creditor.  Any wage garnishment actions will be halted when you file for bankruptcy.  A skilled attorney can explain the bankruptcy process and assist you in making an informed decision regarding your financial difficulties.
