What would you like to do?
You cannot be arrested for owing money. If a collection rep. even hints at such an action being taken against you. She/he is in violation of Federal/State laws, and can be in… serious trouble. An agency that has "bought" your account from the original creditor can take legal action such as a lawsuit. If they win they can garnish wages, bank accounts and take other legal actions to recover money that is owed. The amount of garnishment that can be ordered or other property seized is governed by state laws (in some cases Federal and State laws apply).You have many rights that afford you protection from actions of collection agencies/creditors. I don't know what state you reside in so I can't be specific.Please email me if you would care to discuss this further. Take Care
They can put a lien on your house if own one. Getting a judgment doesn't require you to be there. It does mean that if you default on your payments they can take the property,… put a lien on your home or whatever you have that is of value. I do know they can and will garnish your wages. I am sure in certain circumstances they might be able to check your balances. I'm not real positive about that though. The debtor must get such an agreement in writing signed by all involved parties. If that is done, the creditor cannot take further action to execute a standing judgment without receiving permission from the court where the judgment was entered unless the written agreement contains a default clause (it will!). DO NOT, make any payment by personal check, or release the name of the banking facility, routing numbers, account numbers and most importantly NEVER allow an automatic withdrawal of funds by the a judgment creditor or collector. You are not legally required to do so without a direct order from the court (this includes a creditor holding a judgment).
In Ohio can child support and temporary alimony payments be garnished for a car that was voluntarily repossessed?
Answer No, both are exempt from garnishment by a judgment creditor . Please note, the judgment debtor must claim the allowed exemptions they are… not automatically granted by the court.
At present four U.S. states - North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Texas - do not allow wage garnishment at all except for debts related to taxes, child supp…ort, federally guaranteed student loans, and court-ordered fines or restitution for a crime the debtor committed. Normally the maximum is 25% of wages.
Answer no you cant get deportes cause your a live here and you are a citizen
Can a creditor garnish the non-employee compensation of an independent contractor to satisfy a Texas judgment?
They can go after almost any assets of the debtor, including his accounts receivable. Which is all the "non-employee compensation" as you put it is. Accounts receivable …for his services rendered...like any other billing of a business.
FORGRT IT YOU CAN'T UNLESS YOU DIE!!!!
The IRS does not garnish these payments (except from their employees). The IRS will, at the State's request, intercept tax refunds to collect unpaid child support.
Not sure in what context you mean, but yes a court order can garnish your wages for child support. IF the custodial parent has filed a support order and paternity has been est…ablished then YES absolutely your wages can be garnished. If you mean that a creditor filed judgment against you and you are the one receiving child support, they cannot touch that money, but if you are getting those direct deposited and the creditor attaches the order to your bank account the child support can be taken indirectly that way. Good luck
what is the maximum percentage or $ for garnishment of wages for alimony in illinois. I have fully completed child support and am continuing to pay for their colleges. I a…m trying to get alimony lowered but having a difficult time.
Obviously, it is not going to be a good, positive thing for your credit rating. But you really need to be more concerned as to HOW this judgment might be enforced. In many sta…tes, a judgment can be enforced by garnishing your wages, liening real property or selling personal items to satisfy this judgment. Which means, constables or other law enforcement officers show up at your house and take an inventory of your belongings for sale. That is not pleasant. Check with your states Attorney General and find out what laws are in place for the collection of judgments. This is nothing to blow off. AND, if you own nothing at this moment, an attorney can go after the statute of limitations are up and just renew this judgment and possibly lien your home you would own in the future. So, be careful.
If you owe back alimony or regularly fail to pay on time, they can get a court order and take the money owed with a garnishment. A garnishment can be up to 50% of your total i…ncome until amount owed is paid.
Yes, if the lender sues you in court and wins a judgment.
Yes. However, the Consumer Credit Protection Act limits the amount. Your wages can be garnished up to a maximum of 50% to cover child and/or spousal support if you are support…ing another spouse or child. If you are not supporting another child and/or spouse, up to 60% of your wages can be garnished. Generally, no more than 25 percent of a person's wages is garnished.
No. That would violate Federal Law.
Yes. By way of Gitmo.
