Most gernishments are automatically stopped by the filing of a bankruptcy or a proposal.

The key thing is to make sure you tell your trustee the garnisment exists. You will also have to provide them with a name and a fax number for a person in your payroll department.

Be aware that it often takes a couple of days to file a bankruptcy or a proposal so you are best to contact a local trustee as soon as you can.
