NOPE, only the state can garnish for CS or taxes. Some collector is trying to smoke you into paying or dont know the laws in SC.

My husband had co-signed for a car for his daughter over 7 years ago before I even ment him and the car was reposesed for non payment. The loan company came after my husband and a judgment was filed against him. Although he did not have his own checking account, we have a joint account. (I put him on my account after we married). Unbenounced to me, they went into my checking account seized it and took every penny I had. So yes..this does happen. Be carefull about who you have a joint checking account with, because It happend to me!

If the judge awards that as a method of satisfying the terms of the loan, probably.

In order to lawfully garnish your pay they either need the authority of a court order to your employer do so, or you must have agreed to it in some contract or agreement that you previously signed.

The State can place a lien on bank accounts and other assets. The lien freezes the account.

A collection agency can only garnish pensions in PA that is directed deposited in a checking about if the pension is paid by PGBC, a government program if the debtor has not filed an exemption. Typically, the debtor has 10 to 21 to file an exemption.

Yes, they do. Unfortunately, they will take every penny that is in your account, and they won't tell you before they do it either. All they have to have is a judgement against you. I was falsely informed that if my husband's name was on the account that they couldn't take money from the account, but that wasn't true either. They can garnish any account with your name on it, or with you as a co-signer. The smart thing to do is to take your money from the account and have your pay deposited into an account that doesn't have your name on it...someone you trust like your spouse or parents or child. They can garnish your pay as well, but only 25%.

Keep in mind that a creditor who has a judgment against you has the right to garnish your pay or checking account until the amount is satisfied. It is best to go to your local court clerk's office and file a motion to set payments.

what to do if someone is on your checking acct as the secondary and the collector are out for them and your accout get garish stop putting your money into the account. if you are the primary on the account you need to close the account. make sure that there is enough money in the account to cover any pending items. Simply open another account in your name ONLY. You really should have taken action before it got this far. Yes, Texas can garnish wages. If you cannot pay your only solution is a bankruptcy lawyer.

No They can not.....you are in one of the safe states. Texas and North and South Carolina along with Pa are safe states that can not garnish wages.

Yes, a creditor can garnish wages even if a levy was lifted on the account. This would require a judgment and the court documents.

Once a collection agency has gone through the procedure to garnish your bank account, they can do so as many times as necessary until the debt is paid.
