wage garnishment after judgment
by: Gerri and Mary

Thanks for submitting your debt collection question on our Q&A page. Wage garnishments are a matter of state law. My understanding is that in your state, Tennessee, judgment creditors can garnish up to 25% of your wages, but I am not an attorney so please don't rely on that as legal advice.

Char, based on the (very valid) questions you've been asking, it sounds like you are quite stressed out about this, and I don't blame you. No one wants to have to go to court over their debts. It wouldn't hurt for you to get a free consultation with a bankruptcy attorney who can help you understand what this collector can and cannot do to collect from you, and to help you weigh your options. It's free and confidential, so there is really no reason not to get some advice.

Hang in there and let us know what happens.
