Stop Wage Garnishments With Ohio Bankruptcy



Chapter 7 or 13 Bankruptcy Stops Wage Garnishments


Akron-Canton Ohio bankruptcy lawyer can help you to end wage garnishmentsA wage garnishment is when creditors obtain a judgment for monetary damages and the court orders your employer to garnish your wages. This often happens when someone has fallen behind on credit card payments, medical bills, lawsuits, and other debts.  Government debts, including unpaid income taxes can be garnished from your wages without obtaining a court judgment.


Bankruptcy's Automatic Stay Stops Wage Garnishments

If you have a wage garnishment against you, it is important to understand that filing bankruptcy can end most wage garnishments. When you file chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy in Ohio, an automatic stay goes into effect. The automatic stay prohibits creditors from pursuing collection activities against you during your bankruptcy case. This includes the ability to end wage garnishments and stop harassing phone calls from bill collectors. Included are all unsecured debts such as credit cards, hospital bills, and lawsuits, and even can include IRS wage garnishments for back income taxes.


As soon as a bankruptcy case is been filed with the federal bankruptcy court, any post-petition wage garnishment will be returned to the debtor.  A creditor’s failure to return post-petition garnished wages is a violation of the automatic stay provision.


Additionally, any pre-petition wage garnishment collected by a creditor during the 90 day period before filing the bankruptcy may be retrieved by the trustee. In the event that the bankruptcy trustee chooses not to pursue the pre-petition garnished wages, the debtor may take action against the creditor.
