What debts do creditors generally garnish wages for?

If you've had the misfortune of receiving debt collection calls or notices in the mail before, then you've probably been warned that your creditor may file suit against you if you don't pay. What you may not realize is that once a lawsuit gets filed against you, you generally have some time to appeal the judgment. If you don't, then your creditor may be allowed to begin garnishing your wages.

Filing for bankruptcy isn't the only way to end wage garnishment

If you were to research what happens when an account goes to collections, you'd find that creditors generally only try to work out a payment arrangement with you for a short period before they pursue other legal options to recover what you owe them. One option that creditors commonly pursue is garnishing your wages. While filing for bankruptcy can put an end to wage garnishment, there are other options that can help you achieve the same result.
