They called my payroll office claiming they had a judgement to garnish wages. Asked for a fax number then asked that the employer contact me to call them. Have a name and number but when I called the number was disconnected, I have never received any paper, never received any calls. No Info, if this is real is this legal what they are doing?
Your employer has the documents to start the Wage Garnishment.
Get a copy and go to the courthouse where the suit was filed and check with the sheriff's department to see how you were allegedly served.
If you were not served file a motion to quash service and vacate the judgment.
On the suit, there should be the name and address of the person or firm that filed the lawsuit.
You and your employer should have been served with a notice of wage garnishment. You need to see what papers your employer has to see if the wage garnishment is legitimate. Without documents, no garnishment can occur. Once you get the papers, call a lawyer to discuss your options.
