Wage Garnishment Attorney San Diego
When you owe a creditor for unsecured debts such as credit card debt or a student loan debt, then your creditor can sue you and obtain a judgment against you for the debt. The creditor will then try to collect on that judgment. The easiest ways for a creditor to collect on a judgment are to garnish your wages or levy on your bank account in California. Your creditor will most likely do research on you and find out where you work. If your creditor has done some simple research on you, they likely know where you work.

Much like a bank levy, a creditor with a judgment against you can have documents served on your employer to garnish wages. California wage garnishment laws state that a judgment creditor can garnish up to 25% of your wages until a judgment is paid in full. This applies to private student loan debt that has been defaulted on as well. Your employer cannot ignore this and must garnish your wages as mandated by the writ. The only bright note is that your employer is not permitted to terminate you simply because your wages are being garnished.
