Yes. It does not matter where the debt was incured. When signing up for a credit card you most likely signed an agreement allowing court action to take place in a certain state.

In Indiana, a credit card company can only garnish wages if there has been a judgment against you. If they sued you, and you lost or did not show, and the Judge determined you owed, they can garnish you. They can not do it on their own.
