Wage Garnishment Happens: What to Do About It

Posted by Chad Van Horn on Dec 21, 2016 7:00:00 AM

It’s not just student loans that can hit you right in the paycheck, there are other circumstances where your wages can be garnished. Very simply, as long as there is a judgment against you, your wages can be garnished to pay the debt.
  • Child support
  • Spousal support
  • Student loans
  • Creditor’s judgements – credit cards, medical bills, auto loans, personal loans, etc.
  • Taxes
  • Defaulted lease – car or dwelling
  • Delinquent bills
Wage garnishment is the collection tactic of last resort where a creditor goes to court in order to obtain a judgment saying that a) you owe a sum of money, and b) the creditor or owner of the debt has not been able to collect by other means, and c) that your wages can be garnished to pay that debt. It can be a nasty shock, especially since you may not have seen or been able to responds to a summons. If you ignored a summons… well. You’re sure not going to do that again.
