In situations where you have fallen seriously behind on your bills or have
defaulted on certain financial obligations, you may be at risk of having
a creditor or debt collection agency seek a judgment against you to garnish
your wages. After a successful wage garnishment judgment against you,
you would no longer receive your entire paycheck. Your employer would
instead pay a portion of it directly to the creditor or debt collector
as a means of fulfilling your obligation to the creditor. In some cases,
a creditor may seek to levy funds from your bank account.
