Tifton, GA residents, we have considerable experience with Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and can tell you which is a good choice for your circumstances.
Because of the misconceptions surrounding bankruptcy, it is often considered a last resort. While we know that bankruptcy is a decision that shouldn't be taken lightly, it can sometimes be the best option to recover financial security. There are two types of bankruptcy you can consider to stop wage garnishment.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy works to pay off your debt with the liquidation of your assets. A trustee gathers and sells your eligible assets, then uses the proceeds of the sale to pay your creditors. The remaining eligible debts in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy are discharged (removed). Since the debts are no longer owed, you won't be subject to wage garnishment. In most cases, you have enough exemptions to protect your assets from liquidation. If not, you file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy and pay back what is required over a period of time.
