Can P&B Capital Group LLC Garnish My Wages?
Before we go ahead to answer this question, let us have a look at what the word “Garnish” means in this context. In the contest of debt collection, “to garnish” is not to add decorative vegetables or spices to a salad or soup. Garnishing in this context refers to a situation where money from a debtor’s paycheck is withheld and sent to the creditor. A third party’s involvement is paramount, and this third party is the debtor’s employer, who is then referred to as the “garnishee”.
So, to answer the question, yes, a debt collector can garnish your wages after seeking permission from your employer and the court.
What are garnished accounts used for? They are used to settle debts from child support, student loans, unpaid taxes, and other unsettled collection accounts.
Now how does it really work? When someone enters a debt and fails to pay at the given period of time, the creditor meets and arranges with the debtor’s employer with permission from the court to take a certain amount from the debtor’s wages to pay, for as long as necessary, till all the debt is fully recovered. This principle applies in all cases of debt, except if the debt is under the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The court has no need to step in if the debt is an IRS levy.
