Hi phil,

Yes, if the credit card company wins a lawsuit against you they can garnish your checking account for non payment of dues. They cam also put lien on your car and home.

Thanks,

Aaron

Hi Rick,

Medically retired or just generally retired, as per Federal Law, retirement benefits are non-garnishable. Credit card companies and collection agencies cannot garnish your retirement money.

Thanks,

Aaron

My wife has been sued for a debt on a credit card issued to her in California, can my pay check be garnished in the state of California?
We are happily married, but currently in an economic hardship, and can't pay the debt.

Can you go back after a jdugement and apply interest to that same judgement? Ex; Judgement was $3,000.00 issued 2008 and now they went back and got another judgement for an interest amount of $1,200.00 They now want a lump sum of $4,200.0 Is this legal?

I am in CA and have been past due on my credit since I lost my job in May 2010. They are telling me they are going to lein my house. Can they do that? If they place a garnishment on my bank account, is it one time for the balance in the account or do they need another judgement to regarnish? I have offerd to pay $25 month but it is not good enough.

Hello, I live in Illinois. I have been sued and lost in court. Judgement entered. I do have a home paid off 100%. Could never get a home equity cause of my bad credit. Anyway, Can they put a lien on the home, even if I have a lien on it already for back taxes? Also, How common are sherriff sales, as in comming in your home and empty out everything you own? If we own the home jointly, and Illinois has a 4,000 exemption allowance, BUT the judgement is only in my name... can I double the 4 thousand allowance for my spouse also and make it eight?

Full disclosure: I'm not an attorney and if you need legal advise you should contact an attorney.

I do believe that it matters what state you're in but if you are in a community property state, you husbands debts are your debts and visa versa!

My parents received two papers on the front door and when they gave it to me. I read that it was a judgment from two months ago, however I was never served for these documents. Also I live 100 miles away from my parents why would they leave those paper for anybody to pick them up without an envelope. Is this judgment legal? This is in California for a credit card!

I'm not sure about the garnishment laws in Virginia. Was the credit card issued to you in the same state? You may want to call the credit card company, themselves, and ask if the paperwork was sent by them. ..or was sent by a CA's office? Do you remember if you signed any documents stating the credit card can be garnished from wages if it goes into 'default'? i would call the company and see what you can do about making payment arrangments. You can also do research on the web, about the state of Virginia, and see if wage attachment is legal in that state.
