Hi, I will be happy to assist you, and it is my goal to make you a very satisfied customer! This may take a few minutes, so thanks for your patience.
Once you file a petition for bankruptcy, there is an automatic stay of collection activities. The creditors are violating the stay if they are still taking actions to garnish your wages, so you should immediately notify your attorney. You should also immediately send a copy of the bankruptcy petition to the creditor just in case they haven't received it -- they should then no without a doubt that they cannot be taking collection activity against you.
Ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX a call in to my attorney now... So once they recieve it (if they have not already) they cannot just go into my accounts due to the 'stay' sorry to be repetitive, just want to clarify while I am awaiting a return call from my attorney.
