Yes, they can. They want their money any way they can get it. It would be best if you make the arrangements that you feel you can afford and they will accept--Rather than 1. the embarrassment of people at work knowing this is happening and 2. seeing a chunk of EVERY paycheck going to the bill until it is paid off. (the amount deducted will depend on what state you are in--ex. New York--it is a simple 10% off the gross of every paycheck or bonus, Kentucky has a formula they use and one stands to lose a lot of their net even if you are the only bread winner.) Check the following link for your state * The lender would have to file suit in the debtor's new state and if awarded a judgment enforce the judgment as a wage garnishment. If the lender chose to file an abstract judgment using the one that was awarded in a previous state such a judgment can only be used as a lien against real property owned by the debtor, not as a wage garnishment.

Can they garnish your wages in NC if your car is repossessed?

No, they cannot garnish you wages if you reside in NC. Only the IRS, state and local tax authority can garnish your wages. If you move to a garnishment state garnishment proceedings may be taken against you. Only a civil judgment may be filed but that would be at the creditor's discretion. Typically, one the car has been repossessed, it will have a condition report done on it by the repossession company who will then send it to the company that assigned the account. The credit company will determine what to do at that point. If it is worth it for them to have the vehicle go to auction, they will have it transported to the auction company where it will be sold. If the vehicle is sold for more than what you owed (this includes all the fees that get added to the account, i.e., repo fees, transport fees, admin fees, etc.) the credit company has to give you the balance. If, however, it is sold for less than what you owe (more often the case), you are responsible for the remaining balance. Yes, they can take you to court for that balance but most of the time it is written off by the credit company and it remains on your credit as a repo.
