Q. Is it legal for my savings acct. ( DIRECT DEP from soc sec) to be garnished by credit card company?? FACTS/background
A: If these are the only funds in this account, you should retain a lawyer to file an objection to garnishment. Exempt funds is just the kind of argument that a judge will listen to. However, if there are commingled funds, the analysis is more complex.
Q. You didn’t answer the question what is the statues on the issue?
A: I don't understand: "what are the statutes on the issue". What does that mean? I provided you with a general breakdown of garnishment law in Michigan (exempt funds), and I provided you with free advice on how to potentially stop the garnishment. Maybe if you re-post your question so it makes sense, me (or another attorney) could provide you with a more acceptable response.
Q. Being garnished now by a collector that received the judgement in 2013 and failed to collect.
A: If the money in your account is not exempt, (exempt funds, for example, are SS Disability and various retirement funds), the creditor is likely permitted to garnish. You may wish to file a Motion for Installment Payments with the court. In some cases, but not all, this type of Motion may stop the next garnishment. I suggest you contact the creditor to see if you can enter into a payment plan and stop the nest garnishment.
