How Does Bankruptcy Affect Wage Garnishment?

Whether you file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, any garnishments that are already occurring will stop immediately. Creditors, including credit card companies, student loan lenders and the IRS, will not be able to take any more of your money, at least temporarily.

Under Chapter 7, your debt and the garnishment may be entirely eliminated. Under Chapter 13, the debt will become part of your repayment plan along with your other debts.

If a creditor has frozen your bank account, it may be possible to have the freeze lifted so you can continue to have access to the funds. This is not always possible, however. When you visit us, we will be able to tell you whether this is an option in your particular situation.
