Helping Individuals with Wage Garnishment Issues
Illinois Wage Garnishment Laws
When an individual falls behind on debt payments, creditors may garnish their wages in order to obtain payment. A debtor's employer will receive a wage garnishment order to withhold a certain amount of that person's wages. If you need legal counsel for a wage garnishment matter, Atlas Consumer Law can assist you. We realize that wage garnishment can place you and your loved ones under financial strain and we wish to help you avoid this.
- Wage garnishment in the state of Illinois is dictated by the following rules:
- Only 15% of your wages can be garnished by consumer creditors
- Creditors must obtain a judgment in order to seek wage garnishment
Other kinds of creditors may garnish more than 15% of your wages. We can take a look at your wage garnishment case to determine the most effective course of action.
