Carthage Stop Wage Garnishment Lawyers
In North Carolina, it is more difficult than in most other states for creditors to collect payments from debtors through wage garnishment. Aside from judgments ordering child support awards, taxes, student loans, and payment for ambulance services, wage garnishment is generally not available to judgment creditors.
Nevertheless, creditors with out-of-state judgments often send garnishment orders to employers of North Carolina residents. This is illegal. If your wages are being garnished, or even if you have been threatened with wage garnishment, you should consult with an experienced bankruptcy and stop-wage-garnishment attorney immediately. If the garnishment is illegal, not only can you have the funds that have been illegally garnished returned, you may be able to receive additional penalties and attorney’s fees from the creditor.
