Bankruptcy and Garnishment

When creditors file lawsuits, debtors rarely respond. Debtors know that they owe money, and that they may have no ground to stand on in terms of defending against the lawsuit. Unfortunately, not responding allows the creditor to obtain a judgment, which can be used to seek bank account garnishment or levies against other property. Filing bankruptcy stops lawsuits and stops garnishment.

Has a creditor threatened wage garnishment? In California, creditors are allowed to garnish up to 25% of your after tax monthly income. Filing bankruptcy prevents any such attempts from moving forward.
