Wage Garnishment Defense Lawyer in Indianapolis
Are Your Wages at Risk of Garnishment?
Garnishment is one of many actions creditors use to collect from debtors. Indiana state laws limit the amount that creditors can take from debtor's paychecks, which is up to 25% for most net wages. Wage garnishments are orders from the court agency and are sent to the debtor's employer.
Creditors will receive a set amount from the debtor's paycheck that their employer is forced to withhold. Wage garnishment can make it so that you are not able to fully support yourself and your family.

Bankruptcy offers one immediate benefit for wage garnishment. After bankruptcy has been filed, an automatic stay immediately requires creditors to cease attempts at collection. Filing for bankruptcy allows you the ability to get your financial circumstances back in order. Not only does it end garnishments, but it also terminates foreclosure, repossessions, lawsuits, judgment liens and all other debt collection actions.
Our firm can discuss whether you should file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 13 bankruptcy, or another option entirely. When you work with our law firm, you can count on our Indianapolis bankruptcy attorneys to help you plan a strategy that offers maximum debt relief.
