can a collector take my paid off car in Texas

by Amy

Can a collection agency that handles hospital bills take someone's car that has been paid off in the state of Texas?

Is there a court judgment against you? If not, and the debt collector is threatening to take your car because you have unnpaid medical bills, then please talk with a consumer law attorney immediately. You may be able to get assistance for free, since those threats may be illegal.

If there is a judgment against, you then you need to know what property is safe or exempt from judgment creditors. That's something a bankruptcy attorney should be able to tell you.

Hope this helps!
