My husband and I live in West Virginia, and my husband went back to school to get his Master’s Degree in Media Studies (because he really wants a career in Film). He got his student loan through Sallie Mae.
Anyway, he works for the state and isn’t paid what he’s worth. I’m currently unemployed, because we only have one car and public transportation around here is dicey at best. Recently, his mother called him and told him that Sallie Mae was threatening to start garnishing wages (even after submitting an income sensitive form to them a couple years ago) and even going as far as threatening to take our tax refund.
The thing is, we were going to be using part of that refund to buy a camera, so we could start supplementing our income, so we could start paying back the loan as well as try to improve our quality of life, and start working towards having a family of our own.
I’m just so scared that this is going to ruin everything.
Can they just start garnishing your wages (or take your tax refund) without suing first?
