Wage Garnishment Defense Lawyer in Chicago, IL

Bankruptcy Garnishment Defense Lawyer

The only practical way to stop the garnishment of your wages is through filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy or
Chapter 13 bankruptcy. When you file for bankruptcy protection under either of those chapters a part of that protection is what is called an automatic stay. All collections activities must cease immediately after you file for bankruptcy under penalty of law. This includes the garnishment of your wages. However, a wage garnishment based on unpaid child support or spousal support will be exempt from the automatic stay.

At Benjamin Brand Services our Chicago wage garnishment defense attorneys can help you stop a wage garnishment and can seek the return of wages that have already been garnished.
