Shreveport Lawyers for Stopping Wage Garnishment

Bankruptcy Stops Wage Garnishment

If your financial distress is bad enough that your creditors are garnishing your wages, it is time to take back control. There is help available. At The Cook Law Firm, APLC, we can help you stop wage garnishment by filing for bankruptcy. You deserve a fresh start and the opportunity to get back on track. We will help you get there.

The Cook Law Firm, APLC, represents people in Shreveport and northwest Louisiana. We have over 20 years of bankruptcy experience and have helped countless clients protect their wages and obtain the debt relief solutions they need.

Working Toward a Better Future

Louisiana creditors can garnish up to 25 percent of your wages in order to pay the debts you owe. This includes credit card companies, medical facilities, private lenders, banks, credit unions, lien holders or the IRS.

Our Shreveport attorneys for stopping wage garnishment can help you end garnishment or get money back if your wages were garnished already.

Take the Next Step

When you file for bankruptcy, all or most wage garnishment will stop immediately.

  • Chapter 7 will stop all wage garnishments except some taxes, student loans and child support.
  • Chapter 13 can prevent all garnishment except child support

Filing for bankruptcy does not necessarily mean you will lose everything. If your wages are garnished, your creditors can take as much as they want and just leave up to 25%. The IRS can take even more. With a Chapter 13 plan, your repayments are calculated based on your income, debts and budget.
