In most cases, creditors and collectors must get a judgment against you before they can garnish your wages to pay consumer debts. We aren't aware of any exceptions for medical debts in TN, but we can't say they don't exist.

If a debt collector is threatening to take money from your paycheck if you don't pay the debt right away, we recommend you get free legal advice about debt collection from a consumer law attorney who can help you understand whether the collection agencies' threats are legal.
