Stop Wage Garnishment in California
The problem with financial troubles is that once a few payments are missed, things tend to "snowball" out of control. Soon, you are getting constant communication from collection agencies threatening lawsuits and wage garnishments. It is important to remember that there is still hope. Contact a lawyer as soon as bankruptcy enters your mind as a possible solution to your financial difficulties.
As a San Mateo wage garnishment and judgment attorney, I have helped countless individuals in California who were struggling to make ends meet. My name is Kendall Coffman, and I can help you, too.
My clients generally are concerned with the time frame of bankruptcy. They worry that they might have waited too long to file. Two situations trouble them the most:
- Judgments: Depending on your circumstances, it may be possible to discharge judgments against you following a bankruptcy filing. Sometimes, individuals think that if they have been sued by a collection agency, they have waited too long to file. This is not true. Certain types of judgments, however, are not dischargeable, such as child support, family support or certain Internal Revenue Service cases. Contact my office for a more detailed explanation of judgments or wage garnishments.
- Wage garnishments: You may think that if a wage garnishment judgment is against you, you are stuck in that situation. Even if a creditor is already taking money from your paycheck to cover a debt, you can still file for bankruptcy and get that action stopped.
