My question involves judgment recovery in the State of: Georgia
Today I found out my joint account with my husband was garnished and the balance is now zero. I have been in an agreement with the lawyer for the credit card debt and have been sending $40 per month. I received the garnishment notice and was told by the lawyer that I wouldn't be garnished since we had the agreement. Well, I am gullible and it was.
Anyway, it is a joint checking account with my husband. We have just signed a lease for a house in Pennsylvania, but my husband is still in Georgia finishing out work. The check we wrote for security deposit on the house in Pennsylvania was written on the 8th but it didn't clear yet and my account is now at zero. The Judgement was on me, NOT my husband. Is there anything we can do now to fix this? I am in another state with no money and he is working in Georgia.
