Can a person's wages be garnished if they are on disability in the state of Florida for a car repossession?

Some states do not allow garnishment of wages. Check online by typing in "garnishment, Florida" in your browsers search engine and/or by calling legal aid in your area. Your financial situation usually has no bearing on garnishment or the execution of a properly ordered collection (writ)on a judgment.. as with any legal problem of which you are unsure you should seek legal help. All Social Security and RRB benefits (including disability) are exempted from garnishment under both federal and state laws. Private disability benefit exemptions are generally not subject to garnishment unless they are in connection with a personal injury award. Florida is known as a "debtor friendly" state, meaning that, in most situations it is very difficult for the judgment holder to execute the judgment award.

Ouch!

Additionally, you can be criminally prosecuted in Florida if you attempt to hinder the lender in securing their collateral.
