25 Oct In Texas, can my bank account be garnished to pay a debt?
Yes, if a judgment has been obtained. The judgment creditor can request the court to issue a garnishment writ. The judgment creditor can garnish your bank accounts, savings accounts and any non-exempt personal property of yours held by a third party. While wages may not be garnishable in Texas, your wages lose their character of wages once they are deposited in your bank account. If you have been sued, you should consult with an attorney.
