Will bankruptcy stop a wage garnishment?

Yes it will as the online application asks if there are any attachment of earnings orders in force against you. A garnishment is a court order requiring your employer to withhold a certain amount of your wages and send it directly to the person or institution to whom the money is owed, until the debt is settled.

The Official Receiver will rapidly pull the plug on all such orders as preferred creditors are not allowed in bankruptcy. A more cynical point of view might be that the existence of a garnishment might threaten the OR’s ability to place you into an Income Payments Agreement (IPA).

Bankruptcy UK offers a full bankruptcy administration service and will submit your bankruptcy application online. Court appearances are no longer required for bankruptcy. Call us for bankruptcy help on 01425 600129 or for an informal chat about your circumstances.
