Individuals who owe back taxes or consumer loans may be having their wages garnished. This process involves automatically transferring a percentage of an employee’s paycheck to pay off a loan over time.
If your debts are so severe that your wages may be garnished for decades, bankruptcy can be an effective solution. A state entity generally performs garnishment as a result of a court order, and a reversal of that order by the bankruptcy court will help individuals wipe away debt and stop garnishment once and for all. Debtors with a great deal of unsecured loans such as credit card debt may be able to file for a Chapter 7 discharge to eliminate these lines of credit.
The Golden State Law Group is a Southern California law firm with years of experience helping local households avoid wage garnishment and wipe away loans through bankruptcy. Whether you are seeking Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, our attorneys can help. Call our San Diego office today at (858) 240-2480 to set up an appointment and begin working toward a garnishment-free life.

In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, paying off larger debts involves the creation of an executory contract. This is a legal agreement between the creditor and debtor that outlines the way in which the large debt will be paid off over time.
The federal bankruptcy court judge has the power to adjust terms within these contracts to ensure that they become favorable to the creditor. If you have a steady income and secured debts, filing for Chapter 13 may allow you to restructure your current contacts and lower your monthly payments. This move can also help stop foreclosure proceedings and allow you to keep your home.
As with all financial matters, bankruptcy can benefit some households more than others. Consequently, it is important to speak to an experienced lawyer about your eligibility. San Diego area residents in need of actionable advice should contact the Golden State Law Group by calling (858) 240-2480. Our skilled staff can help ensure that your executory contracts make a dent in your debt.

Creditors can be particularly tenacious when faced with the possibility of not getting their money back. As a result, lenders and debt collection agencies will often stop at nothing to try to collect certain overdue loans. Bankruptcy’s automatic stay process is designed to stop these lenders in their tracks, but it does not always work.
By law, all creditors named in the bankruptcy petition are required to stop their collection efforts as soon as the Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 paperwork is filed. However, collection agencies may not know about the proceeding and may attempt to harass you once more. If you ever find yourself in this situation, tell your bankruptcy attorney as soon as possible. Your lawyer will know that these creditors are violating the law, and he or she can help you file a legal claim against the at-fault companies.
