File for Bankruptcy and Prevent Garnished Wages

File for Bankruptcy and Prevent Garnished Wages
If you are struggling with debt, the last thing you want is to lose your source of income. Unfortunately, wage garnishment is one of the first tactics creditors use to get you. If your creditors have threatened wage garnishment or have started garnishing your wages, an experienced lawyer can help you stop wage garnishment in Phoenix.

At Carmichael & Powell, P.C., our Phoenix bankruptcy attorneys have been helping people across Arizona protect their money. For more than 40 years, we have provided our clients with prompt and professional service when they need it most. The sooner you talk to us, the sooner we can help you explore your options for relief. We may even be able to reclaim some of your garnished wages.

Immediate Relief Through the Automatic Stay

The moment you file for bankruptcy, you will receive an automatic stay, which puts an immediate stop to all wage garnishment. If you have any reason to believe that a bank, hospital or credit card company may want to garnish your wages, we can help you take action to stop this as soon as possible.

Many people are not even aware that they are going to have their wages garnished until their creditors notify their employer, which takes place only a few days before the garnishment starts. It is important to act quickly, so you can prevent as much wage garnishment as possible. If you file for bankruptcy after garnishment has begun, the trustee is most likely to give your wages to your creditors. We can help you recover as much as possible.

As a full-service boutique law firm, we provide our clients with the personal service they deserve throughout the bankruptcy process. Contact our Maricopa County offices today to speak to an attorney and learn more.
