A creditor cannot garnish your wages unless they file a lawsuit and obtained a judgment against you. The time deadline to file a lawsuit will vary by state.

How do you find out if your car is going to be repossessed in Arizona?

If you are more than 1 payment behind rest assure it will be repossessed. The way to prevent this is to catch up on your payments ASAP. Default on the loan agreement you signed, and they will repossess the vehicle. They will then sell the vehicle and you will pay the difference in what the vehicle sells for and the balance left on the loan. They will sue you for the balance, and you will pay. Your credit will then be ruined for 7 years. Avoid this if there is any way possible. Talk to the lender and see if something can be worked out. You do not want the car repossessed.

Can a mobile home finance company place liens and garnish wages after repossessing a mobile home or can you just leave it as a bad debt that will haunt you for 7-8 years and then go away?

After the mobile home is repossessed they will try to sell it. You will be liable for the difference of what you owed less what they got for it. They can sue you for that amount and if they win a judgment against you they can place liens on property or your person, sieze bank accounts and garnish wages. Wages cannot be garnished in TX, PA, NC, or SC. No debt EVER just 'goes away' and its presence or absence from your credit reports does not alter attempts to collect a debt.

No. They can repossess their collateral (the car which was repossessed), and they can send a collection agency to hound you for money, but they can't confiscate your property.
