Can My Creditors Garnish My Assets in Texas? – Mary

“Dear Steve,

I have not paid my credit card payments for over 5 months due to the recession. I cannot afford to restructure them at this time because I am under employed and expect to be so forever due to my age. I live in Texas.

Can one or all of the credit card companies garnish all or any part of my checking, savings, IRA or 401K accounts? Each account is held at a separate financial institution. I live in Texas
