Can a Debt Collector Come After Me if My Wages Are Already Being Garnished?

Not if the debt collector is trying to garnish your paychecks twice for the same debt, according to Troy Doucet, a consumer attorney in Dublin, Ohio. “It would be a problem if the debt collector was trying to stack one wage garnishment on top of another,” Doucet said. “If that happened, the consumer should call the court for a hearing or contact a consumer lawyer.”
