I am being garnished. My bank accounts have been frozen for 4 weeks now. The company's taking all my money. I haven't had a dime of my own for over a month (Freeze initiated 05/05/11. Court date 06/21/11). How long can the company have my funds frozen and leaving me nothing to live on?

File bankruptcy before 6/21 and get the money back. The garnishment should end by 6/21, but the creditor can then garnish again if it hasn't been paid in full.

Until 6/21. You might want to turn off your direct deposit.
