Valencia Wage Garnishment Lawyer
Are You In Jeopardy Of Your Wages Being Garnished?
Wage garnishment occurs when money is taken directly out of your paycheck
by the entity that you owe it to before you receive the check. Wage garnishments
are done when you owe a creditor or the government money that you could
not or would not pay on your own volition. The creditor will get a judgment
against you from the court which gives it permission to remove money from
your check. Wages may be garnished for debts owed to creditors, failure
to pay student loans, or because of unpaid taxes. The government does
not need a judgment by the court to garnish your wages.
There are limits to the amount of money that can be deducted from your
paycheck. Wage garnishment must be no more that 25% of your disposable
income. It is not uncommon for employers to hold back a larger percentage
of your earned income than the 25% allowable by law. An experienced Valencia
bankruptcy lawyer from
RJB Law Offices can assist you in recovering those wages and can also educate you on the
wage garnishment process.
IRS Wage Garnishment
One of the most frequent users of the wage garnishment process is the IRS.
The amount they can garnish depends on the amount of money owed, marital
status and how many dependents you have. When a state court orders a garnishment,
state law determines the maximum amount that may be removed from your paycheck.
It is mandatory for the IRS to send you a notice stating that the back
taxes you owe will be recovered by the process of wage garnishment. Such
letters are usually sent out 30 days prior to the start of this tax recovery process.
When the Internal Revenue Service starts threatening you with wage garnishment
and levies, our well-informed legal team has much expertise negotiating
with them, persuading them to accept other forms of
IRS tax resolution, such as installment payment plans and offers in compromise. We will also
advocate on your behalf regarding any state tax matters such as those
involving the Franchise Tax Board, the State Board of Equalization and the EDD.
