In the event they secure a judgment against you then yes. The only way to garnish wages, aside from the federal government attaching your wages or freezing your accounts, is to have an order of garnishee. Without it, no employer will release wages for garnishment. Any who do are perhaps criminally liable. If your wages have been garnished, ask for a copy of the order.
