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

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.

Question is not clear. Are you asking if the STATE of Florida can garnish your wages or are you asking, can your wages be garnished IN Florida?

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

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.

they should not be able to garnish wages for a vehicle the leinholder has taken back into their possession for payments not being made. They have the vehicle back, so its not right for them to take your money.

knowing the lawpeoples wages mostly get garnished from law suites and judgments from the court systems

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.

If your creditor has obtained a judgment against you, 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.
