Not saying you can not but I haven't heard of anyone stopping a bankruptcy. But to answer your question yes they can garnish your wages if you do stop the bankruptcy. Under a chapter 13 plan the money you pay into it goes to the creditors you owe there for they are receiving money so they have no reason to garish your wages and plus you are protected under the plan. Once you stop the bankruptcy then they aren't getting any money so then they will start to garnish your wages again.

Hi Jennifer,

The answer to your question, whether or not creditor can garnish your wages, if you stop bankruptcy, is yes.

Debra and Jennifer, one can dismiss a bankruptcy once filed. However it is not easy to dismiss the chapter 7 bankruptcy, but chapter 13 bankruptcy dismissal is easier. This is best done with the help of an attorney. If the court finds that the dismissal won't affect the creditor negatively, the court may grant a petition to dismiss the bankruptcy.
