How to Stop a Wage Garnishment

Wage garnishment happens when the court orders your employer to take out a portion of your paycheck and send the money to a creditor instead. Since the law restricts how much money the court can garnish per pay period, it might take years before your debt is repaid and you can start getting full paychecks again. Getting your wages garnished might feel like a defeat, but you may be able to fight a wage garnishment, even if you cannot afford a lawyer to take up the fight for you. Learn how to stop a wage garnishment and how a registered legal document assistant can prepare the forms you need.
