Wage Garnishment in Georgia

A couple fighting over finances decides to search for a wage garnishment attorney near me.
What Is Wage Garnishment?

Wage garnishment occurs when a court order requires your employer to withhold money from your paycheck. It is usually the result of a court judgment where you’re found financially responsible for a certain amount of money. Bankruptcy is the only way to prevent wage garnishment unless you’re able to dispute the validity of the garnishment.

How Do I Stop Wage Garnishment in Georgia?

Filing for bankruptcy prevents wage garnishment because it generates an “automatic stay.” Automatic stays prevent collection actions by creditors, including but not limited to garnishing your wages. Automatic stays go into effect immediately after bankruptcy is filed, regardless of whether you file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
