LaPlace Wage Garnishment Attorney

Bankruptcy Attorney Serving Covington, Mandeville & St. Tammany Parish

Wage garnishment laws are an attempt by the government to discourage people from having to file for bankruptcy. By forcing workers to pay some of their wages back to their creditors, they ensure that the person does not increase their debt any further.

If your wages are being garnished, you may feel a sense of embarrassment, shame, or even a fear of losing your current job.

Under Title II of the Consumer Credit Protection Act, it is illegal for an employer to fire someone for being subject to wage garnishments. But if someone has incurred more than one garnishment, that person's employer does have the right to dismiss him. It is in your best interest to comply with wage garnishment requirements and keep your current position. If your paycheck is being affected by debt, speak to a LaPlace bankruptcy attorney today to begin managing your finances.

Our attorneys have serve hundreds of clients every year, managing credit restoration, ending creditor harassment and providing foreclosure help.

Wage garnishment can be invasive and stressful, but enlisting the experienced of a LaPlace bankruptcy attorney can get you back on the path to your normal life.

Understanding Wage Garnishment

Our legal team will do everything possible to stop wage garnishment through the appropriate legal means. If it is valid and warranted, wage garnishment sets in when all disposable income has been deducted from a debtor's finances. These deductions can come from your federal and state taxes, Social Security or unemployment insurance.

Your wage garnishments can total no more than 25% of your disposable income, which means that there is a limit to how much can be withheld from your paychecks. Our attorneys will make sure that your employers do not exceed this 25% limit, and will be able to protect and adjust your paychecks if they are taking more than they should.

Contact a LaPlace wage garnishment attorney today to protect yourself and your finances.
