Can a debt that...

Can a debt that has been given to a law firm file for wage garnishment? It was a title loan of $355.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? And is a local attorney or other consumer protection advocate helping with this?

Az

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you contacted the manufacturer?

The law firm wanted me to make $100 payments and I told her I couldn't commit to that just yet.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Can they threaten to have you arrested also?

The law firm can pursue a garnishment if it represents the judgment creditor or purchased the debt. It cannot threaten arrest or take funds that are not available.

It says I defaulted but I never received a court date.
Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 7 months ago
This is sadly common. You never got notice so you can have it vacated by motion at clerks office.

Court clerks office where judgment issued. Usually local courthouse.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
