I have a garnishment from my employer. They take payroll taxes off before determining disposable income. What's to stop me from just raising my additional federal withholding by a lot to make my disposable income too low to garnish and then get huge federal refund next year?
How much is the debt? You are going to have to deal with the debt sometime. If the debt is a garden variety judgment in a MI Court you could ask for a payment plan. Why not file the bankruptcy (if you can). In a Ch. 7 you can get back everything garnished in the 90 days before filing if it totals...Read more »

Whose money was taken? Hers or yours. What kind of debt did you have with this bank in your prior case?...Read more »
Creditors have to file a proof of claim (POC) if they want to get paid in the Ch. 13. There is a time limit for them to do that. If the time limit has passed they will not receive anything. If not they may still file a POC.
Really doesn't matter to you since the debt will be discharged...Read more »
