Wages Garnished

Thanks for submitting your debt collection question on our Q&A page.

If I understand your question, you are saying that you believe your wages were garnished for a debt after the statute of limitations expired.

At this point, I am going to recommend that you contact a local consumer law attorney with experience in debt collection cases. Find out how to get FREE or low cost legal advice about debt collection from a consumer law attorney here.

There are a number of things that could have been mishandled here, and since you are already having your wages garnished you need to talk with your own attorney.

The good news is you can get a free consultation so there is really no reason not to look into the matter. If it turns out the attorney who is handling your debt collection case broke the law when trying to collect from you, you are entitled to court costs and attorney fees.

Please let us know what you find out! Your experience may help others who are going through the same thing. You can use the comments field below to let us know.
