Wage Garnishment in Texas
Filing Bankruptcy Will Stop Bank Account Attachments
Filing bankruptcy includes an automatic stay that will put an immediate stop to creditor attempts to collect debts such as calls at work and garnishments of bank accounts. At the Maida Law Firm, P.C., the Beaumont bankruptcy lawyers offer a
free case evaluation if you are dealing with adverse actions from creditors. They have offices in Beaumont and Houston* and have more than 40 years of experience dealing with the issues that clients face.

Creditors cannot garnish wages in Texas, as they do in other states to collect debts. Creditors, however, can garnish bank accounts, which can cause your checks to bounce and even stop your ATM card from working. Filing bankruptcy can stop garnishment in its tracks if you act promptly enough. As you receive a notice that a creditor has a judgment against you, it is advised that you contact a bankruptcy attorney as soon as possible to stop the garnishment.
Stop Collection Calls
As soon as a Houston bankruptcy attorney from Maida Law Firm, P.C. files your Chapter 7 or
Chapter 13 bankruptcy papers, creditors will be barred from calling you. If you do receive a call from a creditor after that point, tell them you have filed bankruptcy and to call the law firm. If a creditor continues to call you, are permitted to take legal action against them. The bankruptcy attorneys are prepared to take on your case and can fight alongside of you.
A Beaumont bankruptcy attorney can help you with your case. They advise you to take advantage of the free case evaluation offer. At that time, they can explain how to stop garnishments and collectors' calls. Contact the firm at your earliest convenience to get started ceasing the collection attempts! We have offices in both Beaumont and Houston; the Houston office is by appointment only.
