Minnesota Judgements and Bankruptcy

If you have a lot of judgements from state court in Minnesota bankruptcy may be able to help you get rid of those judgements. It may also help you get rid of the garnishments that go with the judgements. In many cases you may not even realize that you have a judgement, the first time you will know that a creditor has obtained a judgement against you in when they start to garnish your wages or bank account. Once this garnishment starts they can take 25% of your wages, unless you meet one of the exemptions provided by Minnesota statute. If you are being garnished you may want to consider filing for bankruptcy. Bankruptcy not only helps you get rid of the judgements, but it may also help you to recover some of the garnished funds taken in the 90 days before your bankruptcy filing.
