Hello I am new to this forum and I don't what to do with my situation. Back in 2015, my job was dying; my hours were cut and then in June of 2015 the business closed. Also during that time I couldn't make payments on my car, credit cards etc. Also in June of 2015 American Express filed suit against me. They seized the funds I had in my bank account and then sent my bank a bank levy. I guess they couldn't send my employer a Writ of Garnishment because they closed for business. Now I am on Food Stamps program, I am living with my mom and trying to get a job. But I am afraid to go and get a job because I am afraid they will garnish my wages. If by chance I land a job, is there something I can do that will prevent them from garnishing my wages?
