Wage or Bank Garnishment?
Our office can defend your paycheck and bank accounts from garnishment. Florida has strong consumer protection laws, however they need to be raised in a timely matter to protect your income otherwise your pay check may be garnished. There are numerous exemptions to protect your income from debt collectors.
If you have a judgment against you, the debt collector will seek to collect payment on their judgment. The most common way this occurs is by either a wage garnishment or a bank levy. Neither of these provide for much advance warning to you and may end with you loosing up to 25% of your paycheck or wake up one day and realize your bank accounts are frozen.
Thankfully there are defenses. My office has been successful in getting wage garnishment dismissed by vacating the actual judgment. Another option is filing a claim of exemption. Florida has numerous claims of exemption that a Miami debt defense attorney can advise you on. My office will file a claim of exemption on your behalf and fight for you to keep your pay.
Most importantly is to remember that there are deadlines that must be adhered to when fighting garnishment in Miami.
