Wage Garnishment in Wisconsin
Milwaukee & Waukesha Collection Lawyer
Receiving a notice of garnishment when you are already living check to check can push you past the financial tipping point.
Filing for bankruptcy can stop garnishments dead in their tracks. When you file for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, a Court order called the automatic stay immediately stops any lawsuit (including garnishment) filed against you and most actions against your property by a creditor, collection agency, or government entity. The automatic stay may provide a powerful reason to file for bankruptcy.
