If you file any bankruptcy, it can stop a wage garnishment from a court judgment, even one held by a timeshare. But you need to be eligible for bankruptcy and the Chapter 13 may require that your wages also be garnished, so it will help to see what will happen.

    Yes it would, but you have to repay as much of your debt as possible in a chapter 13, so you need to weigh the costs and benefits of such a strategy. You may end up better off paying the debt yourself. Consult with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer to be sure it's the right strategy.
