    Default Car Repossession and Wage Garnishment

    My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Texas
    I was on Maternity leave and lost my job. I have tried to work with Citi financial and they just aren't a consumer friendly creditor. My car has now been repossessed. My question is when I find a job, can my wages be garnished for the deficiency? They are stating they CAN garnish my wages as I am in Texas. Is this true?

    You live and work in Texas, and are paid by a Texas employer through a Texas bank?

    Texas doesn't permit wage garnishment for ordinary debts (exceptions exist for special obligations, like child support.)
