3 Ways to Stop a Wage Garnishment
There are a few ways to potentially stop or get out of paying a Utah wage garnishment, but it depends on the specific circumstances. Here are a few options:
- Negotiate a payment plan: If you owe the debt, try negotiating a payment plan directly with the creditor to avoid wage garnishment.
- Challenge the debt: If you dispute the debt, you may be able to get the wage garnishment lifted by challenging the validity of the debt in court.
- File for bankruptcy: If the wage garnishment is due to a debt that you cannot pay, you may be able to have it discharged by filing for bankruptcy.
It’s important to understand that these options may not work for everyone, and the best course of action will depend on your specific circumstances. It may be helpful to speak with a Utah attorney for guidance.
