Northern Colorado Wage Garnishments
When an individual has unpaid debts such as credit card bills, personal loans, or even lawsuit judgments; wage garnishment can be sought after by the creditor. A wage garnishment is an order that has been requested through legal means and served upon your employer or bank to garnish your wages. A sheriff is normally used to issue the order to comply with the wage garnishment, which must be obeyed. This can result in devastating effects on your finances. If you are already living day to day and have been unable to keep up with your payments, having a set amount deducted from your paycheck or taken from your checking account can leave you with many other personal situations to handle, such as bounced checks, problems at work and even not enough money to live on. If you have been affected by a wage garnishment order, call the knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney of Sumner Law Office P.C. immediately to handle the situation for you.
A garnishment occurs after a creditor goes to court and wins a judgment against you. You may have to appear at the court order hearing regarding the wage garnishment. The creditor is then required to send you a notice clearly stating that the wage garnishment has been authorized. Certain types of income cannot be garnished, such as unemployment, retirement benefits, social security checks, workers compensation benefits, or public assistance.
