Can Garnisheed Funds Be Returned In A Bankruptcy

2008-03-15   minute read

Lorraine, Funds that have been garnisheed from your paycheque are usually held in court until the court has determined that you do, in fact, owe the money and the court issues a judgement. If the funds are still in court on the day you file bankruptcy, they will go into the bankruptcy, not back to you. I am afraid your friend is wrong. Depending on your situation, those funds may be able to cover some or all of the cost of your bankruptcy and a bankruptcy will certainly prevent any further garnishee. Please call 310-9700 (a local call from anywhere in Saskatchewan) during business hours to discuss this further or book an free initial consultation. Ian Schofield Regina, Saskatchewan
