Bankruptcy's Effect on Wage Garnishments

It's happening now more than ever before; creditors aren't even bothering to try to collect debts directly. Instead, they're going straight to court to get a judgment and then recover their money through wage garnishment.

If you already know about wage garnishment from firsthand experience, here's what else you need to know: Filing for bankruptcy will not only put any pending creditors' lawsuits on hold — it will put a stop to any and all existing wage garnishments with the exception of child support.

At Prescott Pearson & Tande, PA, we can help you put an end to wage garnishment through the bankruptcy process and help you begin to regain control of your own financial future. Take the first step toward a fresh start by talking to one of our Twin Cities area attorneys in a free consultation.

The Benefits of Working With an Experienced Bankruptcy Law Firm

Experience matters — especially if you want to make the most of the fresh start bankruptcy can give you. As a client at Prescott Pearson & Tande, PA, you'll have the confidence that comes with knowing you're working with a law firm that has handled over 70,000 bankruptcy cases in Minnesota since making the decision to focus exclusively on this area of the law in 1975. We can help protect your rights if you are facing, garnishment, repossession of a credit lawsuit.

You'll also benefit from our knowledge of the bankruptcy system here in Minnesota, and from the trust we've built with bankruptcy judges, trustees and creditors' attorneys over the last three-plus decades.

Last, but not least, we always treat people the same way we would want to be treated ourselves. While this might sound like an obvious way to do business, one of our biggest sources of new business has always been law firms and attorneys who don't treat people right.

"This Is All We Do, and We Do It Well."
