Texas does not allow wage garnishment for creditor debt in most cases, but has amended the statute to allow for certain exceptions. The state has always allowed garnishment for child support, federal and state back taxes, federal or public funded student loans, and in some cases spousal maintenance (alimony). The law now allows for creditor remedy by garnishment if the debtor does not have sufficient nonexempt property to pay the debt, (such as a bank account or real property) the creditor may petition the court under TX.Code, 63.100 for a wage garnishment. The other exception is, if the debtor is employed by an out-of-state company, the judgment creditor can then garnish the debtor's wages under the company's home state laws.
