Why You Could Use A Wage Garnishment Attorney

Creditors may have the upper hand when it comes to wage garnishment, but at Fullman Firm, our credit defense attorneys are highly experienced in fighting back. If you did not receive proper notice of the default judgment, we can go to court to stop the garnishment, help you reduce it, or even convince the judge to terminate it. The sooner you contact our wage garnishment attorneys, the sooner we can protect your paycheck.

Can My Wages be Garnished for a Defaulted Loan in California?

If you have defaulted on a credit card or another type of loan in California, your wages may be at risk of garnishment. When a creditor goes to court to obtain a default judgment, the court may issue an order instructing your employer to withhold a portion of your wages and send it directly to the creditor until the debt is paid.

In California, there is a limit on the portion of your wages that can be garnished. Creditors can only take 25 percent of your earnings (after deductions) or the amount by which your weekly earnings exceed 40 times the hourly minimum wage, whichever is less. However, this can still result in hundreds of dollars taken from your paycheck, depending on your weekly earnings.

How to Stop a Wage Garnishment in California

The best way to defend against a wage garnishment is to work with a trusted wage garnishment attorney in Orange County.

We can also help you file a Claim of Exemption with the court, and if we can prove that the garnishment will cause you financial hardship, such as a foreclosure or an eviction, the judge may agree to reduce or eliminate it.
