Edwardsville Wage Garnishment Lawyer

Dealing with debt and unpaid bills is stressful enough without having to wrestle with creditors and collection agencies that are threatening to garnish your wages. Under Illinois law, if your creditors obtain a judgment against you, they can take up to 15 percent of gross wages or disposable earnings up to 45 times the federal minimum hourly wage, whichever is greater.

If your wages are being garnished, Steele Law Offices, LLC, in Glen Carbon, Illinois, can stop that and put your entire paycheck back in your pocket. You can use bankruptcy to stop the wage garnishment process. The sooner you take action, the more of your own money you will be able to keep.

I am attorney Randall P. Steele. I have provided legal representation for individuals in bankruptcy law and other areas for more than 20 years. Our law firm guides clients through the Chapter 7 bankruptcy process, but we first evaluate your financial situation and determine if bankruptcy is the best solution.

Illinois adopts federal limits for child support withholding. An employer can withhold up to 50 or 60 percent of weekly disposable wages and an additional 5 percent for arrears payments.
