Wage Garnishment Removal

The filing of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy petition automatically stops collection actions including wage garnishments. It is important to consult with Jordan Legal Group, attorneys, because there are exceptions. However, as long as the stay or suspension is in effect, creditors generally may not continue or initiate wage garnishments, lawsuits or collection attempts, such as calls and letters. That is why it is important that you provide us with all of your debts and creditors so that they are served the required notices under the Bankruptcy Laws.

If you have tax liability, it is important to consult with Jordan Legal Group attorneys because we are knowledgeable about how your tax liability is handled in Bankruptcy Court. Contact us for a free evaluation.

Remember, every situation is unique. Generally, tax debts are dischargeable if certain criteria are met:

  1. The due date for filing a tax return is at least three years ago
  2. The tax return must have been filed least two years ago
  3. The tax assessment must be at least 240 days old
  4. Tax return was not fraudulent
  5. The taxpayer must not be guilty of tax evasion
