Prevent Wage Garnishment Now

08 Apr 2010, by Benjamin Luftman in Bankruptcy, Consumer Law, Misc

Creditors that are seeking wage garnishment can take up to 25% of your paycheck. We can help stop this!

The best thing consumers can do in today’s troubled economy when sued by a creditor is to defend themselves against creditors’ aggressive litigation tactics.  With most consumers not defending themselves, creditors have the ability to win these suits without having to prove the interest charges, penalties or even that the consumers owe the alleged debt.  These cases can result in a judgment against the consumer which can lead directly to wage garnishment: a court ordered seizure of funds from a consumer’s paycheck or bank account.

Filing for bankruptcy can stop a creditor from garnishing your wages. Consumer wage garnishments in Cleveland, Ohio have increased 30 percent between 2008 and 2009.

Don’t assume that just because you have been sued by a creditor there is nothing else you can do in order to help yourself.  Creditors often omit documentation to prove their claims and it is in your best interest to fight back!  If you have been sued by a creditor please give us a call at 614-224-1500.
