The debtor has no real options unless they want to consider filing bankruptcy to avoid a lawsuit. A creditor/collector does not have to adhere to any terms other than those that were outlined in the original lending agreement.

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.

Whenever I am helping a client with a collection agency, the first thing I do is try to contact the state agency that licenses collection agencies. I also try searching on Google and that usually works.
