It can feel like the ultimate conundrum: you are having trouble paying your bills, so a creditor sues you to take up to 25 percent of your paycheck. This leaves you even less money to pay your remaining bills and still live your life.

Once their frustrations reach a certain level, creditors will take you to court. If a judge rules against you, you could face wage garnishment of up to 25 percent of your take-home pay. This means that a quarter of your paycheck would immediately be removed and sent to your creditor. This leaves you a great deal less money to pay other creditors, buy gasoline, buy groceries and simply live your life.

As soon as you feel pressured in your financial situation, it is wise to contact an experienced attorney. Bankruptcy might give you the chance to escape your crushing debt and work toward a more secure financial future.
