Can Bankruptcy Stop a Garnishment?
Yes. A bankruptcy filing will stop most garnishments. In addition, it is often possible to recover garnished wages. Specifically, if more than $600 was garnished in the 90 days leading up to your bankruptcy filing, we can usually get that money back for you. If less than $600 was garnished in the 90 days leading up to your bankruptcy filing, it cannot be recovered. Anything garnished more than 90 days prior to your bankruptcy filing cannot be recovered.
