Wage Garnishment Lawyer in Arizona
Creditors in Arizona, per the debt collection process, have the right to garnish wages of those who do not fulfill the obligations of debt. In other words, if you owe a person or a lender or bank money, they can bring a lawsuit and obtain a court judgment against you.
When a judgement is obtained, refusing to pay the judgement allows the judgement creditor to then start a process of wage garnishment. In Arizona, there are few ways to put a stop to a garnishment. A person could argue that income is exempt or a wage garnishment would result in extreme hardship. Occasionally these arguments are successful, but another option is to file for bankruptcy which would immediately stop a garnishment in place automatically.
Before garnishing wages, a creditor must get a judgement against an individual. This, unfortunately, puts an even greater burden financially on anyone already in a debt financial situation.
