End Wage Garnishments
If you have debts that you are unable to pay and for which you have been sued in court, creditors may use a strategy known as wage garnishment to recover money from you. Through a court order, a percentage of your paycheck will be automatically removed in order to pay creditors. This can be extremely difficult for an individual or family already struggling to make ends meet. If you are concerned about having your wages garnished, or if it is already happening, it’s important that you contact an experienced lawyer right away.
