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

Dear Mary,

You might find more solace by putting your wounded debt out of its misery. It’s the humane thing to do.

You can click here to find a local bankruptcy attorney and talk to them for free about your specific situation. Get the facts and then you can make an informed and educated decision if bankruptcy is right for you.

At least this will close the door on the old debt, protect your assets, and stop future collection attempts or suits against you for the debt.
