If you have fallen behind in your financial obligations and face wage garnishment, a federal bankruptcy filing can help you avoid the loss of income, but you must act quickly. If your paycheck will be issued tomorrow, you must file today.

At the law offices of Amy M. Levine & Associates, we have the skill, knowledge and experience to protect your wages from garnishment. We have a comprehensive understanding of the consumer bankruptcy laws, including Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. We start by listening, identifying your needs and tailoring our approach to meet your objectives. Because we have handled many personal bankruptcy filings, we know how to put together the necessary documents to make a timely filing to protect your wages.

We offer a free initial consultation. To schedule an appointment with an Ohio bankruptcy lawyer, contact our office or call us at 614-360-2942 in Columbus or 304-519-4354 in Huntington.

Protecting Your Hard-Earned Wages

If you have received a notice of garnishment, contact us immediately. We can put together the minimal documentation to get a bankruptcy petition filed, often the same day. When you hire us to help you stop a wage garnishment with a bankruptcy filing, we will start by determining whether your best recourse is to permanently discharge debts under Chapter 7 or to restructure your debt under Chapter 13. In either situation, we will prepare all the documents necessary to complete your bankruptcy filing, and will act as your advocate in all hearings or proceedings with the court, the trustee or creditors.

Even if we cannot prevent the first garnishment, by filing a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy petition, we can suspend all further garnishment of your wages. Upon the filing of bankruptcy, an automatic stay goes into effect, stopping all legal proceedings and prohibiting the use of phone calls or threatening letters to collect on a debt.

If your wages are being garnished because you failed to abide by the terms of a Chapter 13 reorganization, we can help you stop the garnishment by converting your Chapter 13 petition to a Chapter 7 filing.

We are a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.
