Household? Can they seize s jointly owned car ?
The won't be able to garnish, you are just below the minimum threshold. However other assets might be grabbed,(depending on the value of the assets and the type of asset), so don't feel immune.
There is federal law which limits garnishment if your income is less than a certain amount. A judgment debtor could attempt to levy a car but is unlikely if there is anything owed on it. Consult a debt collection attorney if there is a garnishment attempt.
