Wage Garnishment

If you have a wage garnishment, generally bankruptcy is going to be an effective tool to stop it. Wage garnishments are filed in county courts in Ohio: both municipal and common pleas. Once a bankruptcy is filed, federal law requires the county proceedings to stop.

However, you have to properly notify the county court. To do that, you have to file the proper documents. Generally, I will make an appearance for my client and go on as their attorney of record in the case. Then I'll file the proper notices.

Even then, there can be multiple hassles. The Clerk may still need to return funds garnished previously. All funds garnished after the bankruptcy is filed must be returned. The Court may also refuse to put a stay on all collections. In this case, you need an attorney who knows what the courts are looking for in order to fully impose the bankruptcy in the case.

Give us a call for advise about your situation: (614) 284-4394.
