Can a creditor garnish wages and bank account


I’ve heard creditors can garnishee my wages. Is that true?

Once you have declared bankruptcy, the answer is no. Your income cannot be garnished by your creditors.

If you are not bankrupt and your creditors want to garnishee your wages, they have to take you to court. If you are concerned about a creditor garnisheeing your wages, you should consider going bankrupt and stop them in their tracks.
