my husband and i have a joint account. He works a regular job and I am on SSI. Recently a credit card company froze our checking account. The credit card was my bill. he did not cosign any thing. Can our joint account be garnished, Should I remove my name from the account or what should i do. Credit card co. would not work out a settlement prior to freezing the account.the fee they charged was approx.1920.00.the total of the bill was less than 500.00. please help . We depend on my SSI check

i am just retired and i can't make the min amts on my 2 credit cards. approx 55 dolls each a month. can i make token payments, 1/2 to each company and be able to keep them off my back? The only monies going into my bank acct is social security and a small one from my job 30 yrs ago,can they garnish either one of these? I do owe, but i can't pay the min they want.

I just received notice that I am being sued over a deliquent credit card that I have not paid on in almost 4 yrs when my husband got cancer. He is totally disabled and I have been caring for him ever since. All of my credit cards have went unpaid. My question is: the only income coming into our joint checking acccount is his disability SS and a disabled veteran benefit, so if the company obtains a judgement against me can they attach money in our joint checking account? How can I keep that from happening? I have not contributed any money to our checking account and none of the credit cards were in his name.

What is the amount you can pay on any bill. If you dont have a job
without getting a judgement against are garnishment is 5.00 a month ok to keep the creditors off your back if its a doctor bill or a bill of that nature.

I have a lawyers office calling me now sent me a letter to receive a debt from a dentist office, it is a very old bill and was off my credit but in the recent months the lawyer is trying to contact me by mail and phone. I am self employed and a single parent that receives no child support. I make just enough money to pay my every month bill. I am barely making it. In the letter the lawyer is stating that He was informed by my employer, which is not true I am self employed and that if this matter isn't resolved in 10 days then he will have no other choice but to issue an income execution to the sherriff or marshall. Can u give me some advise and help me on this matter . thank you.

Can SSDI be garnished for Student Loans though?

Subject: SSDI

I have a lot of medical bills and see by the replies that collection agencies cannot garnish my bank account. I have tried to pay a little each month to pay them off, but some creditors will not accept anything less that $50/mo. I am on SSDI. My husband has his own acct at a different bank. Can he be made responsible for my medical bills? I thought about using a prepaid credit card, but my bank is free with a debit card already.
