Question:

Dear Steve,

Recently contacted by consolidation group about consolidating my student loans I also have a wage garnishment on my recent paystub’s from my college institution I was wondering if consolidation would remove that garnishment from my current paystub’s the person I spoke to you about the consolidation told me that that would not remove it but your website if I’m not mistaken says otherwise please let me know

Answer:

Dear In It Deep,

This all depends if these are federal student loans. Federal student loan wage garnishments can be easily stopped. See The Easiest Way to Stop a Student Loan Wage Garnishment – Loan Rehabilitation.

If this was a private student loan or debt owed to a school and they sued you, won a judgment, and then garnished your wages, you will have to talk to the entity that sued you or a lawyer who is licensed in your state to attempt to negotiate an end to the garnishment.
