Florida Creditor Judgment Lawyer · Orlando Wage Garnishment Attorney
If you are being threatened with wage garnishment by a creditor, filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy will prevent further action by your creditor or employer. You will continue to receive full wages earned throughout the legal proceedings. In the event your wages have already been garnished, the money is often not sent directly to your creditor. Your employer may be holding the money, pending the outcome of the bankruptcy. You are entitled to recover all of the money held in the account.

What if your wages are already being garnished?
