I was in the military and had loan payments and such being garnished out my checks. After the fact of filing my bankruptcy the military took 3 months to stop the payments to those creditors covered in the bankrputcy. Ever since they have recieved the money they have refused to return the money. After talking to my lawyer for the thousandth time she finally decided to tell me I wasn't going to get it back. I was told that the monies owed was to be paid back as soon as they recieved it. Is that right? Or did I just get a crappy lawyer?

Re: Check garnishments
Without doing some research, I cannot be certain regarding your rights to the money. I think it might be worth filing a motion to hold either the creditors or your military paymaster in contempt of court for violating the automatic stay.
