Do you ever see your garnished wages?

If a wage garnishment is put in place against you, and it's never happened before, you likely have a lot of questions about the process -- and the options you have moving forward.

The first thing you should know is that you do not see your garnished wages. It's not up to you to take a portion of your paycheck and send it to the lender. It happens before you even get the check. Your employer deducts the money and sends it in on your behalf.

Why does it work this way? Wage garnishment is usually not the first option. The person or company you owe money to has tried and failed to collect directly from you. They have then gone over your head to get the money from your employer so that you have no say in whether or not you pay off that debt.

As you can imagine, this can be very frustrating. Maybe you're putting in as many hours as you can at work, and you're still just scraping by. You cannot afford to see a significant portion of your check disappear. You won't be able to make ends meet. You can't pick up more shifts to make up for the loss. To make it all more complicated, you feel helpless, as the employer takes the money before you ever get it.

How you feel is understandable. This can be a frustrating process, especially with so much at stake. Make sure you are well aware of the legal options you have and the steps you can take to rectify the situation.
