If a creditor secures a judgment against you, it has the right to seize money directly out of your paycheck or your bank account. In the case of wage garnishment, the creditor can take up to 25 percent of your paycheck, up to the total amount of the judgment.
In the event of a bank account levy, they can seize everything in your account up to the amount of the judgment, save for a 75 percent exemption if the money in your account is from wages. In order to benefit from this exemption, you must file a response to the garnishment and fight it in state court.
Certain assets are exempt from seizure, such as Social Security and workers’ compensation benefits.
If you have taken out a loan on a car or truck, your lender retains significant rights over that property until the final payment is made. If you fall behind on car or truck payments, your lender may repossess the vehicle without court permission. Even if you have made every payment but one, you risk losing the vehicle forever if it is repossessed. If you are behind on your auto loan payments or your vehicle has already been repossessed, it is important to take legal action as soon as possible.
