Use Bankruptcy to stop lawsuits and garnishment
If you have been sued, then its possible for your paycheck to be garnished at any time. Generally the creditor can get 25% of your pay. Every payday. What’s worse, and most people are unaware of this, creditors are not limited to garnishing your paycheck. They can also wipe out your ENTIRE BANK ACCOUNT! Unless the funds in your account are protected by law, and in most of the cases we see there is no such protection, the entire account can be wipe out. Without warning. If you have checks written on the account, and most of us do at any given time, they will bounce, and you will not only be out the money in the account, but you will end up with bounced check fees.
It doesn’t stop; there. It is also possible for creditors to file liens against property and non-retirement accounts. The good news is that filing for Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy stops garnishment and lien actions immediately.
