Will my garnishment stop when I file bankruptcy?

Will My Garnishment Stop When I File BankruptcyAll wage garnishments except garnishments for current child or spousal support are stopped upon the filing of a chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy case. If the debt for which you are being garnished is discharged at the end of your case, then the garnishment will not resume.

It is best to file your case before a wage garnishment starts, but you can stop an ongoing wage garnishment by filing a bankruptcy case.
