Have you ever gone to use your debit card at the grocery store, gas station, etc., but it’s declined even though you were recently paid? Does your bank then tell you that your account has been overdrawn due to a creditor garnishing your bank account? If so, we are here to help you! Bank account and wage garnishments are actually far more common than you might think. Many of our clients who face this type of situation think that their money is lost. However, if you act fast enough, you might be able to recover some, if not all of those funds. There are several ways to take action against your bank account or wages being garnished such as a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, settlement, or even fighting the case. There are benefits and drawbacks to all options, so you may want to consider reviewing all options with an attorney before moving forward.
