This is great. We file bankruptcy to stop a wage garnishment
but it’s still going on after I filed the bankruptcy. Is something wrong? My name is Ron Drescher. I’m an attorney practicing bankruptcy and
creditor’s rights in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, and unfortunately human resources,
payroll departments, and creditors they don’t move as quickly as we want them to move after
you file the bankruptcy. So sometimes if there’s a wage garnishment
in place and the payroll company or the payroll department has it set up to withdraw that
amount from your paycheck every time you get paid it might take one, two, or three, or
maybe even four although I don’t usually see that long pay periods before they fix it and
get it right. That’s the bad news. The good news is every penny of that money
that has been paid over to creditors or withheld from your check can be recovered as an unauthorized
post-bankruptcy transfer. It’s inconvenient especially if you’re living
paycheck to paycheck to file the bankruptcy and have the garnishment continued, but the
good news is it will get fixed though it might just take a little time. In this modern world things just don’t move
as fast as we really want them to all the time. My name is Ron Drescher. I’m an attorney practices bankruptcy and creditor’s

don’t know what to do about it, you think that maybe bankruptcy will help, please pick
up the phone and call me. I would love to hear from you.
