Before you get a wage garnishment, is there a court date for you to attend to before the ruling?
First, you would had to have been served with the Complaint and given the opportunity to file an Answer. If you were served, but did not Answer, a default judgment may have been entered against you. At that point, a wage garnishment could be initiated by the creditor.
If my answer is "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL" please acknowledge and mark it so. I appreciate your comments and feedback. I have more than 25 years of successful legal experience with cases like yours. My response is often general in nature because all facts are unknown to me. Specific answers require knowledge of all the relevant facts of your case. Follow up questions are invited.
