If the debt is discharged, the creditor cannot initiate or continue any legal proceedings to collect the debt. Some debts like child support cannot be discharged, so Iowa might be able garnish your wages for something like that.

Garnishment will not stop if you leave the state. A garnishment is obtained from a judgment or default judgment against you in court. You have the option to go to court, and file for modification of the debt or file bankruptcy unless the debt is listed under special circumstances.

A Collection Agency that "owns your debt" can not garnish any wages. Assume that the collection agency in their efforts to collect the debt for their client, sues the debtor and then provoke that the Court works an arrangement to pay the debt, if the arrangement includes garnishment of wages then, the Court can garnish salaries. And there is laws to garnish wages that apply to every state.
