Is your paycheck too small?

Well, I think everyone thinks their paycheck could be better. Sometimes, people see a significant portion of their wages lost to wage garnishment.

A typical Kentucky wage garnishment will take a fourth of a person’s bring home pay. That means if your paycheck is $400.00, after garnishment, it will be $300.00. Most folks I know would miss $100.00.

Filing a bankruptcy immediately issues a court order (the automatic stay) that cuts off wage garnishment. This week I had a client that was a single mother trying to get by on $10.00 an hour only to lose a ¼ of her check to a garnishment on an old care repo. She was so happy to hear that I would be able to start getting the garnishment released the second her petition was filed. An almost identical conversation happened today when I got a bank garnishment released.

You don’t have to suffer. Just because last week’s check was garnished doesn’t mean it has to be that way this week. It’s not too late. Call today. I will be working this weekend.
