What Is a Wage Garnishment? explained by Los Angeles Child Custody Attorney David Pisarra in a short video that kills the legalese and tells you what a garnishment is AND why it’s good for you as a father who’s having his wages taken from him.

Do you want to know what a Wage Garnishment is and why it’s good for you? My name is David Pisarra I’m with MensFamilyLaw.com and we represent men and fathers who have gone to court and they’ve had child support awards issued against them. What then happens is mom asks that a wage garnishment be put on dad’s employment, your employment. Oftentimes men look at that and thinks it’s a bad thing. That’s its going to be an embarrassment that it’s humiliating, that’s it’s not good for their employment, that their employer is going to look down on them. there’s all kinds of reasons, but the reality is a wage garnishment is actually probably your best friend when it comes to child support and here’s why. Somebody else is responsible for making sure that the payments get paid to mom so that she can’t come back in 2 years or five years or ten years and say you never paid it. There’s going to be a record, your employer is going to have a record, it has to be paid to a government agency they’re going to keep records, although their records are pretty shaky, you’re better off having the employer’s records because they’re going to keep track of it, and you won’t have to. that’s why a wage garnishment is actually a good thing for you and you should be happy to have one. I hope that helps if you’ve got other questions please feel free to give me a call or check out our website, MensFamilyLaw.com and remember a cheeseburger and a chocolate shake will get you through just about everything.
