Illinois Stop Wage Garnishment Attorney

Under Illinois law, if your creditors obtain a judgment against you, they can take up to 15 percent of gross wages or disposable earnings up to 45 times the federal minimum hourly wage, whichever is greater.

Filing for bankruptcy stops wage garnishment. If you have been served with a judgment notice or received threats of wage garnishment, it is important to act quickly. Waiting will only make the problem worse. It is important to speak with an experienced Illinois bankruptcy lawyer who can help you explore options for stopping wage garnishment and other creditor actions.

Non-Wage Garnishment

Your paycheck is not the only asset that is vulnerable to creditors. A creditor that obtains a judgment against you may also garnish money and assets from your bank account. The amount they can take from your bank account is only limited by the amount of the judgment. If your bank account contains equal or less than the amount of the debt, they can take it all.
