Eugene Wage Garnishment Lawyer
If you are already experiencing financial difficulties, the last thing you need is to have your paycheck or bank account garnished by creditors. Garnishment can feel like a violation of your privacy, and it can cause serious hardship when it comes to paying your most important bills.
Wage and bank garnishment (sometimes called a bank levy when a government agency is involved) can happen to you if you owe money to a private creditor or a government creditor like the IRS. Private creditors can go to court to seek a judgment against you and then take a percentage of your pay, while tax authorities can garnish your wages or take money from your bank account without going to court. In many cases, these problems can be addressed decisively with the help of a bankruptcy lawyer.
Is Your Paycheck Or Bank Account Being Garnished?
If your wages or accounts are being garnished, you can stop the garnishment and deal with the underlying debts, once and for all, through bankruptcy. As an experienced bankruptcy attorney with compassion and extensive experience in the field, I can help you put an end to garnishment or levies from:
- Credit card companies
- Medical providers like hospitals and doctors' offices
- The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or the state of Oregon, which can take a significant chunk of money from you, without going to court, if you owe back taxes
Every situation is different, and bankruptcy is not appropriate for everyone. As an experienced bankruptcy lawyer, I can help you understand your options and develop a plan to help you improve your situation.
