  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Protection. Chapter 7 is known as individual bankruptcy liquidation. In a Chapter 7 filing, you will need to sell everything you own. The proceeds from the sale will then be used to pay your creditors. Chapter 7 is a bankruptcy option when you can no longer afford to pay your debts.

  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Protection. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is also referred to as debt consolidation or individual reorganization. It’s a way to restructure or reorganize your debts so they are more manageable. Under the supervision of a trustee and with the agreement of your creditors, you will work to pay off your debts in a structured manner.

How to Stop Wage Garnishment and Stop Creditor Harassment with Bankruptcy Filings

Filing for bankruptcy can help stop a wage garnishment by creating an automatic stay. This stay stops all legal action against you and your property, including wage garnishment. Filing for bankruptcy also stops the phone calls and creditor harassment you may be experiencing. All you have to do is inform the creditor that you have filed; wage garnishment will cease and harassing phone calls and letters will stop. If wages are still garnished after your filing, you can apply to get your money back and seek sanctions against creditors that did not stop the wage garnishment or stop harassing you.
