We Can Help
When attempting to receive compensation for unpaid bills, many creditors will often use the legal strategy of wage garnishment & repossession. A certain percentage of an individual’s paycheck is to be automatically removed and paid to a creditor. This can have a dramatic negative effect on a family’s already limited cash flow.
Cravens & Noll has a great deal of experience helping individuals get a fresh start through filing for bankruptcy. Once a creditor has already received a portion of your paycheck through garnishment, your options for recovery are severely limited. Fortunately, filing for bankruptcy can end garnishments almost immediately, and, in many cases, you can get back your garnished funds. The best way to protect your paycheck is to consult with a skilled lawyer prior to a judgment. As soon as you get notification of a creditor lawsuit, contact our Richmond wage garnishment defense attorneys.

Wage Garnishment & Reposession FAQ
Most people who file bankruptcy will not lose their house hold property, cell phones, etc… The main goal for bankruptcy is to get rid of your debts and give you a “fresh start”. So that you can start fresh, there are a number of standard exemptions as to the value of property you can keep, and most people own property under these assigned values. We will analyze your specific situation to determine if you will lose anything prior to filing your case.
Yes. You have to list everything even if you don’t think it is important. We work with our clients to make it simple to account for all property you own and make sure it is listed on your bankruptcy paperwork. Failure to list all of your property could make you subject to being denied a discharge of your debts.
You have to list all debt that you owe. But if you have a credit card with absolutely no balance, you do not have to list that specific credit card in the bankruptcy. Some credit card companies will allow you to keep your account and use the card after your bankruptcy, however some companies will close your account once they see you filed bankruptcy. It is purely up to the individual company.
The garnishment will not stop until your bankruptcy case has been filed with the court.
