Have you ever owed a debt and had money taken from your bank account? We want to hear your story so we can help change debt collection practices in Michigan.

The Michigan Poverty Law Program, a close partner of Michigan Legal Help, is going to a legislative hearing about debt collection practices in Michigan. They want to hear from people in Michigan who have been impacted by garnishment. If you have been in this situation, answering this survey will help us share the real-life impact of garnishment with Michigan's legislature.
