Bronx Wage Garnishment Attorneys

Debt Relief Representation for New Yorkers

Are you facing an impending wage garnishment for an unpaid debt? Wage garnishments occur when a court has ordered part of your wages to be withheld by your employer under what is known as an income execution notice. These notices can be ordered only after your creditor has filed a lawsuit against you, won the lawsuit in court, and has obtained a money judgment against you for the amount owed. The income execution notice is then used to have your employer withhold a certain amount of your wages to be paid to your creditor. What can be withheld, however, is subject to certain restrictions under New York law. If you need help with handling such an action, a Bronx wage garnishment lawyer at Park & Nguyen is here to assist you.

Wage Garnishment in New York

Certain debts, such as delinquent income taxes and unpaid child support or student loans can lead to wage garnishments without a court order.

In general, wage garnishments through income execution notices stem from:

  • Unpaid credit card debt
  • Unpaid medical or dental bills
  • Unpaid bank loans
  • Other private loans

The amount of your wages that can be garnished is restricted by law in New York, based on your disposable income. Disposable income is what is left over from your paycheck after deductions such as Social Security, taxes, and other government subtractions have been taken. If your disposable income is less than a certain amount, none of your wages can be garnished.

Stopping a Wage Garnishment

In order to stop valid wage garnishment, you may try to vacate the money judgment against you or have it modified. You will have to provide the court with an explanation as to why the judgment should be lifted or the garnishment modified. This explanation will require proof with such information as to your income and expenses. Because you will be dealing with a court process, it is best to be represented by an attorney experienced in handling these matters before a judge.

You may also stop wage garnishments through a bankruptcy filing. Our skilled bankruptcy lawyers can guide you through a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 filing to bring you legal debt relief and a fresh financial start.
