Stopping Wage Garnishment

Legal Help in Stopping Wage Garnishment

Cincinnati, Ohio - Colerain, Ohio - Southwest Ohio - Hamilton County

Ohio residents facing the possibility or reality of wage garnishment confront a larger threat to their income than ever before. Ohio law used to limit creditors so that they could garnish one individual's check per month, up to 25 percent of post-tax/net income. Now, however, creditors can garnish every employment check a debtor receives. If a debtor receives a check each week, a creditor can garnish each check, which greatly increases the amount of income the debtor loses.

Creditors accomplish wage garnishment by filing a civil suit in state court, obtaining a judgment and working with employers and banks. Garnishments, also called "attachments," last six months and can cost a debtor thousands of dollars.

If your employment check is being garnished or you suspect your check will soon be garnished, contact the law firm of the Rose Law Office. We have saved our clients a combined hundreds of thousands of dollars since 1981.

The most effective way to halt wage garnishment is through Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies. Once bankruptcy is filed and a case number is obtained from the courts, we can fax a letter to creditors and collection agencies, ceasing garnishment almost immediately.
