I have a wage garnishment against someone who acted dishonestly and broke a civil code 56.36 the amount was awarded not as a debt but malicious intent and negligence damages. Can she discharge the amount owed to me in bankruptcy? I have been told she is going to do it when she gets the notice from the sheriff.
Bankruptcy is a legal way for people or businesses who are no longer capable of paying back their bills to clear these debts and start over.
Wage garnishment is the process whereby your employer sends part of your paycheck directly to your creditor in order to pay off your debt.
