Ending Liens, Levies And Garnishment
When it comes to debt, many people take the ostrich approach: They bury their heads in the sand and ignore their debt and the problems it has created. Thankfully, it is never too late to take action. If you have gotten notice that a lien has been placed on your house or your bank account has been frozen because it has been levied or your wages are being garnished, an experienced lawyer can help you. At the Law Offices of Brian A. Barboza in Santa Rosa, we help our clients take immediate action to overcome liens, levies and garnishments. The solution we recommend in most cases: Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. These have an immediate impact.

The Immediate Impact Of Bankruptcy
Wage garnishment can be overcome by bankruptcy at any time. Wage garnishment is the result of a creditor lawsuit that results in a judgment against you. Even if the lawsuit is still in progress, bankruptcy will make it stop. If the garnishment has not started, it will be prevented by filing bankruptcy. If your wages have already been garnished, the garnishment will stop as soon as you file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13.
In addition, when you file bankruptcy, no creditor can levy your bank account or place a lien on your property. Furthermore, if the debt is discharged in bankruptcy, creditors will be forever barred from levying your accounts or garnishing your wages. Liens are slightly more challenging and may require a different approach. We know how to deal with them.
