Stop a garnishment by filing bankruptcy
In Tennessee, a creditor who obtains a judgment against you in court can collect against that judgment by garnishing your wages. Up to 25 percent of your after tax wages can be subject to garnishment. The garnishment will last until the creditor’s judgment is paid in full.
Filing a Bankruptcy can stop a garnishment. The automatic stay stops any creditor collection efforts and this includes a garnishment. The court will get notice of your bankruptcy filing and will release the garnishment.
