Can the Credit Card Company Garnish My Wages?
As a general rule in Texas, no. But, there are exceptions to that rule. When they record a judgment they can sequester the money out of your accounts and satisfy the judgment by compelling the sale of your other non-exempt assets. They are not going away until you do something about it.
If you are wondering whether your wages can be garnished, then it is definitely time to sit down at a free initial consultation with an experienced attorney who can help you take a realistic look at your finances, evaluate your options and give you a plan for moving forward to solve your financial problems and get a fresh start.
What Kind of Unpaid Debt Can Result in Wage Garnishment?
The IRS has the power to garnish your wages or place a lien on your property. Your best option is to deal with any IRS tax debt long before it gets to the point at which you are facing wage garnishment. The IRS is charging you penalties and interest. We can stop that. In fact, a portion or all of your IRS debt may be dischargeable!
