    I have this attorney trying to get more money than I offered him the attorney said he would accept fifty dollars a month but now wants 200.00 a month out of my wifes check which all she makes is 1000 a month I am on social security and this causing a hardship on me and my wife not able to have enough money to buy food and other bills to live on can I do some thing and how I heard that I can go to the clerks office at the court house and fill out a expense sheet and a hardship letter stating we can not afford this

    If you made an offer and the attorney accepted, then changing the terms is unacceptable. If you are currently being garnished, most jurisdictions have hardship exemptions based on income and allowable expenses. Go to the clerk for the court where the garnishment was issued.

    I have a question not a reply- How long does garnishment take? I intend to file bankruptcy but not until Oct. 1st.

    Hi, Andrea. It depends upon what jurisdiction you’re in and the speed of the attorneys representing the creditor, but if you have a judgment against you, it is a straightforward process to start garnishing pay. Most payroll offices promptly withhold garnishment funds upon receipt of the garnishment order.
