i guess it depends on the state. I live in Ky and under Ky law you can be garnished for up to 25 percent of your disposible wages those are the wages you have after everything else comes out. I am being garnished right now and its killing me

Our daughter had surgery and we had a $2000 co-pay. We never received a bill from the hospital, but instead got a collection. They refused to accept anything but checks and would not give a receipt. We started paying them $125 a month. Within two months, we got summoned for the full amount. When we explained to the judge what was going on, we were told to continue to pay monthly. Now, it is paid in full, but the collection agency got a different judge to directly withdrawn from out account without our knowledge. We moved out of state with a job transfer and got no summons or notification. Since it was already paid, we didn't tell them we moved. Can we get out money back or stop them from doing it again?

Sub: #5 hi, You had already received the court summons,so in that case Fri, 04/30/2010 - 09:57



hi,

You had already received the court summons,so in that case you are not eligible for either consolidation or settlement,the best thing suggested would be to wait for the court for a judgment,and if the repayment plans are still not suitable,I think that bankruptcy is the last option to get rid of that!!!!!!!!!

I was hit by a car back in July. The gentlemen did not have insurance and neither did I. Will they garnish my wages? I make very little money?

I have a large sum of hospital bills dating back to Aril 2006. I have applied for disability and I want to know if the State of Virginia and North Carolina can garnish my back pay if I am approved for disability.

my dad told me once as long as you were payin something they couldnt do anything. but that is not the case anymore. if they dont get what they want they send it directly to a collector or attorney. They can only garnish you through a court order(meaning you get summoned to court) for your something that is in your name soley. so if they account is in your name only they can only garnish you. but they have to take you to court first.
