Chicago Wage Garnishment Lawyer

What is a Wage Garnishment?

Wage garnishment allows a creditor to obtain a court order following a judgment to force a seizure of your payroll directly from your employer.  It's especially powerful because a garnishment order makes your employer (or anyone that owes you money) personally responsible for the payment.  If they don't garnish your wages, THEY owe the money.

This money is taken from your paycheck even if you can't financially survive.  Your garnishment occurs without consideration of the effect on your budget and family.

If you find yourself in this situation, an experienced Wage Garnishment Lawyer experienced with these matters can possible work out a solution for you.
