Will filing BK chapter 7 pro se automatically stop wage garnish?

This answer was rated:

Will filing BK chapter 7 pro se automatically stop wage garnish? Friends of mine are working and have a very low income. They borrowed a few thousand from one of those extremely high interest loan companies. They are just about completed with filling out their Chapter 7 forms and ready to file, when she received a notice from her employer that they are about to garnish her wages. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks.

WALLSTREETESQ :

A chapter 7 bankruptcy would stop all garnishments, except for child support and criminal fines,

WALLSTREETESQ :

Once they file a chapter 7 the automatic stay would stop all collections, and the creditor would not be allowed to collect on the garnishment in anyway.
