Can a debt collector still garnish my wages when I file for bankruptcy?

Can a debt collector still garnish my wages when I file for bankruptcy?  I think it’s stops everything!!


Right, once bankruptcy has been successfully filed, your wages can no longer be garnished for debts that have been eliminated. But while you are thinking about filing for bankruptcy, they can still garnish your wages.

Was wondering the same thing.
