If the credit card company obtain a final judgment against you and obtain a writ of garnishment, then, yes, the company can garnish your wages. However, there are exceptions. If you are head of household, you are exempt from garnishment of wages. I recommend that you consult with an attorney regarding the particulars of your case. Many attorneys on here, including myself, offer free initial consultations. Natalie Guerra-Valdes (954)764-7878 nvaldes@valdeslawfirmpa.com www.valdeslawfirmpa.com
