Your wages can be garnished for an auto repossession if there is a court order. All wage garnishment's must be obtained from the county court of your residence.

If they have followed the laws and have a court order, yes.

You can be sued for the amount owed. Pursuant to that, you could have your wages garnished or be arrested for contempt if a judgment is placed against you and you refuse to pay.

Yes. Even though the vehicle was repoed, they could take you to court for the remaining balance, or what they didn't recover through resale of the vehicle. You would be notified that you are being sued, and have the opportunity to go to court in your defense. If the court finds in favor of the lender (which they generally do), you could have your wages garnished. That may be the point where you have to decide if bankruptcy may be right for you. Bankruptcy would stop those proceedings and keep your wages from being garnished.

If the husband was not liable for the debt, then his wages cannot be garnished to collect on the judgment. The judgment is against the person who incurred the debt.

User Avatar

If the lender has obtained a judgment against you, and garnishment has begun, yes. The lender will continue to garnish your wages until the balance of the debt is paid. This could include the remaining balance after the vehicle was sold at auction and all costs, interest, and penalties incurred by the repossession.

What happens is this, the vehicle gets repo'd. You still owe the deficiency after the vehicle is remarketed. The bank will take you to court for the deficiency. If you do not pay the deficiency if you are ruled against, they may garnish wages by court order. It takes legal action for wages to be garnished.

If the lender decides to sue the borrower and wins a judgment, the judgment can be executed as a wage garnishment

User Avatar

Its your choice. What amount would they get IF they garnished your wages? More or less? Do they have a judgment for the balance due? IF so, they gave you a choice.

User Avatar

Yes a lender can garnish your wages after a repossession. If the resell value of the item does not cover the cost needed to repay the lender, you are still responsible for paying the balance.

A spouse's wages cannot be garnished for a debt that is not theirs. Wages can only be garnished up to 25 percent under federal law.

When you enter in a legal contract to pay and you default it is the creditors right to use all legal means to collect the unpaid balance.Sometimes the collateral is lost, destroyed or its value is less than the cost of repossession. State laws and regulations are different but I know of no rule that requires repossession prior to presuing the collection process. Garnishments are by court order to satisfy a judgment that has been granted by a court.Creditors are notified by summons of pending court action.Failing to appear results in a judgment for the plaintiff.
