How Can A Wage Garnishment Be Avoided?
A wage garnishment occurs when a creditor files suit in civil court to collect a debt. If a judgement is rendered against the debtor, the debt may be repaid through an order for their employer to withhold a portion of their wages and pay it to the creditor. There are options available for avoiding a judgement and subsequent garnishment, as well as stopping them after they are initiated. However, these options must be actively pursued.
