If you move to Massachusetts can your wages still be garnished for a repossession in Oklahoma?

Yes, but the creditor would have to sue in the debtor's state court in the county where the debtor resides and if awarded a judgment execute the writ under the laws of Massachusetts not Oklahoma. If the judgment creditor already holds a writ of judgment in Oklahoma they can file it as an abstract judgment against the debtor's real property without the necessity of court procedure.

Not if you go to court! They cannot garnish your wages without going to court to get a judgment. If you fail to show up in court and simply tell the court that the debt is outside the statute of limitations, then you may have a judgment against you. And yes they can garnish your wages if a judgment has already been awarded. So go to court if it goes that far and immediately ask that the case be dismissed based on the statute.

How do i protect my judgment against someone in bankruptcy?

If the judgment debtor is already in bankruptcy, there is nothing you can do. If the judgment is for a debt for which discharge is not allowed, it survives the bankruptcy. If no bankruptcy has been filed, you can try to attach or levy on some property of the debtor that has some value, or equity.

If vehicle is in repossession phase and you are pulled over will you go to jail for auto theft?

No. Not if the circumstances are as simple as stated. Repossession is a civil law procedure, not involving criminal law -UNLESS- the vehicle HAD already been re-possessed and you went and took it back from the repossession impound lot, or the repossession agent or the bank. If it had already been taken and impounded then, yes, you could be charged with auto theft.

Can your checking account in Texas be garnished due to a debt in another State?

The creditor would need to obtain a lawsuit judgment from the Texas court before wage garnishment would be allowed. Texas only allows garnishment of wages when there are no other means for a judgment creditor to collect a debt owed. If a judgment has already been entered against the debtor in a different state, the judgment creditor can place a "foreign" judgment lien against property owned by the debtor.
