The absolute best way to fight garnishment lawyers is by filing bankruptcy in the United States Bankruptcy Court. Either chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy will stop a wage garnishment as soon as it is filed. Because the state of MD allows creditors to garnish debtor's wage when collecting on a District or Circuit Court judgment, a bankruptcy will once and for all halt the Maryland wage garnishment proceedings and extinquish the debt for good. A debtor will receive a bankruptcy discharge at the end of a successfully processed bankruptcy case meaning the debt is forgiven by the court.
