Wage garnishment issues remain after issue with credit card debt

Many Florida residents and others throughout the country have difficulties paying their credit card balances each month. Unfortunately, some cardholders find themselves in situations where they are unable to make their payments at all. A collection agency may get involved, and a consumer may face wage garnishment in efforts to satisfy the payments. A woman in another state is striving to get garnishment stopped now that a debt she owed has been paid in full.

The woman shared that she formerly owed money to a credit card company in 2017. The company told the woman she must pay $1,400 through wage garnishment. She agreed to the conditions and went further to say that having the payments routinely come out of her earnings was a workable solution to paying off the debt. She was happy to have the debt paid off by September, and the payroll deductions for garnishment payments stopped.

Yet, in November, the deductions started again. With help from a local organization that helps residents with issues, she discovered that the collections company was seeking payments for additional prior debts the woman had incurred. However, the company was required to submit paperwork within 10 working days before it could garnish wages again. Court records do not show that the company provided the proper paperwork.

While a large amount of debt may seem insurmountable, facing wage garnishment can be a frightening prospect. It would be comforting to face that challenge with the help of an experienced Florida bankruptcy attorney. A trusted lawyer will provide guidance throughout the legal process and act in a client's best interest to get his or her finances back on track.
