Yes, Georgia adheres to the basic federal wage garnishment guidelines, with a maximum of 25% of disposable income subject to garnishment, with the first $154.50 of weekly wages being totally exempt.
A person on fixed income wages can be garnished. The reason I know is because my friends father got his wages garnished because he borrowed to much money on his chase card. Her father has to pay back 35,000: that includes intrest. My advice is to not get a credit card and if you get a credit card, only use it for emergencies only because you do not want your wages garnished when you already have a fixed income.
No, wages can be garnished by an order of the courts for any type of debt. However the credit card company or collections agency MUST first file a lawsuit, obtain a judgment, and then file a motion for garanishment of wages providing the courts with your employers information. Any collections agency telling you that if you do not pay them, that they will garnish your wages is breaking the law, as they can not make threats that they do not have the ability or intentions to do. If that is the case I would contact an FDCPA law firm has you may be entitled to damages for the violation.
Even if a credit card company sues you and wins, the judge can only say that you do owe the money. He can attach a lien to your credit file which would prevent any new creditors from granting credit until the debt is taken care of. If you are in bankruptcy the rules change, each state has different laws. If the credit card company sues and receives a judgment in their favor your wages can be garnished up to an amount set by your state's laws.
Well there are a variety of things that happens when you don't pay a credit card bill. Your interest goes sky high, and your balance will become huge, they cut you off, your reported to the credit agency/ bureau and collections agency. Yes they can garnish your wages if that is an option for them. You can go to court, there may be jail depending on circumstances. In the end your credit will be ruined. The only circumstance that would bring "Jail" into the equation is if you stole the credit card, or some other form of identity theft. There is NO debtor's prison in the United States!
