Not many people can spare to forfeit 25 percent of their pre-tax earnings. When people get behind on bills, creditors can get a writ of garnishment and garnish up to one-quarter of a paycheck. Obviously, this chunk of money can greatly affect a lifestyle, particularly if it is already a challenge to make ends meet.
Fortunately, bankruptcy provides a way out of this difficult and scary scenario. That said, properly filing bankruptcy requires the skill of a dedicated lawyer. Pond Law Firm in Jackson, Mississippi, is here to help.
Attorney Michael G. Pond has more than 25 years of bankruptcy experience. He is able to efficiently and effectively ensure that you get back on track to financial stability. Once an automatic stay is filed, it will go into effect and stop garnishment. This places an immediate halt to all forms of creditor harassment.
Additionally, when we file, we can time it so we do it the day before payroll. Immediately after filing, we can contact the garnishing firm and request a release of writ that we forward onto human resources. The end result will be an immediate stop to the garnishment, and we may even get money back.
The key is to take deliberate and decisive action. We encourage you to get in touch and schedule a free initial consultation as soon as possible.
