Q:
What can I do to stop a creditor from garnishing my paycheck?

A creditor has started to garnish my paycheck. What can I do to stop this garnishment? -Jim

Jim,

You can stop a garnishment by negotiating with the creditor or paying the balance in full.

You might also be able to request a hearing to argue that it will be a financial hardship on you if your property is taken. Filing bankruptcy will also stop some wage garnishments. Because these are legal issues, I recommend you discuss your options with an attorney.
