If you have ever gotten behind on your bills, you may have received a notice from your employer informing you that your wages will be garnished, which might make you think that your entire paycheck will go to paying off your creditors. Fortunately both federal and state laws limit both the amount of money that can be garnished and how often garnishment can occur. In addition, there are certain measures you can take to avoid wage garnishment before it happens, including filing for bankruptcy.

If you are unable to make regular payments for your debt, bankruptcy may be a good option, if not the best one. If you receive a notice of a judgment or lawsuit against you, an experienced bankruptcy attorney can advise you about how bankruptcy will affect your particular situation and suggest the debt relief options available to you.
