What is Bankruptcy?

Save Your Home From Forclosure

If your wages are about to be garnished or are already being garnished, time is of the essence. The longer you wait to speak with experienced bankruptcy attorneys like us the less money we can get back for you. Just because some of your wages were garnished does not mean they are gone forever. We need to file your bankruptcy case as soon as possible though. If you have received notice from your payroll department that they are going to start garnishing your wages then your case needs to be filed at least three days prior to the day you are going to be paid. Even then the garnishment of that check may not be stopped. No further garnishment will be allowed though and you should receive the amount garnished back, but it will take some time. Once your bankruptcy case is filed we fax notice of the bankruptcy case to your payroll department, the levying officer and the law firm being used to enforce the judgment against you. The levying officer is usually the civil division of the sheriff’s department of the county you are employed or payroll department is located if you work for a large corporation.

So, in a perfect world you will schedule your free consultation as soon as you know your payroll department has received the earnings withholding order. We will need at least four days to draft your petition for bankruptcy and you will need to pay our fees and complete the credit counseling course. This cannot be completed overnight.
