Can bankruptcy stop a bank garnishment?

Posted by Ellen Brown | Jan 08, 2024

yes, bankruptcy can stop a bank garnishment. A garnishment is a legal process where a creditor takes money directly from your bank account to pay off a debt. If you file for bankruptcy, an automatic stay will go into effect. This means that collection activities, including garnishments, must stop while your bankruptcy case is ongoing.
