Yes. they can, but you should file jointly and so they don't garnish the spouses part, file injured spouse, and I do not know why it is called that but I know my husband owes back support and that is how we have to file so I will get my part. Ans The one above, who erased my previous answer but goes on to say she doesn't really know what she is signing....well hope she qualifies or it could be criminal... And no matter what, to avoid the issue, filing seperately is better. And no matter what...getting your spouse to pay their obligations, (like there taxes or supporting their kids) is better. And if your in a community property state, or the debt doesn't come from those very specific things, etc., etc., injured spouse won't work. Accepting it, and when the problem comes up...you'll have serious ones (probably after he abandons you like he apparently may have done to his last), or just fails to pay his taxes now too...maybe lies on them (the current ones YOU ARE responsible for). You are an injured spouse if your share of the overpayment shown on your joint return was, or is expected to be, applied against your spouse's past-due federal debts, state taxes, or child or spousal support payments. If you are an injured spouse, you may be entitled to receive a refund of your share of the overpayment. For more information, get Form 8379, Injured Spouse Claim and Allocation.

Can you file bankruptcy on wage garnishments?

Basically, bankruptcy uses all your assets to pay all your debts. Under the protection of the BK, you may be able to not have the garnishment taken, but that is only because everything will be used to pay and clear all your debts. You MUST include all of your debts and all of your assets in the filing. You do not and cannot pick and chose what is involved. All are given priorities, some of each may be exempt from seizure or discharge. You really didn't think you could just go BK on something, have the debt discharged and simply keep everything else you want, did you?

Can wages be garnished if child support not filed?

No - there must be an order for support entered by a court or the State's child support agency, but if a retroactive order is issued, your wages will be garnished. There has been a problem with employers receiving phony claims for child support garnishment in recent months. By the time the man confirms there is no claim and notifies employer, the money is already gone. If you have a child, you need to establish an order. see links

No!! except in cases of I believe child support, or money owed to the I.R.S. and stuff. But your average VISA, MASTERCARD, or J.C. PENNY charge account ? No they can't garnish you once you file chapter 7 or 11, or whatever. Of course if you open a new line of credit AFTER you file, then yeah, 'cause you cant file bankruptcy again for 7 years I believe it is. (But what idiot, would wind up back in bankruptcy so quickly ? filing is such a nightmare now, it makes you want to manage your spending much more carefully)

How do you get garnished wages back from employer after you file bankruptcy?

It's not going to happen. You owed money and that creditor went to court to get your employer to deduct what you owed them from your paycheck and send it to them. Your employer does not owe you a dime. They followed a court order. They had no choice. You went bankrupt AFTER the garnishment, so anything paid BEFORE the bankruptcy is water under the bridge. You cannot "get money back" on something that was paid before the bankruptcy. Since you went bankrupt, the garnishment should stop but you will not get any money "back".
