Ok Tex, here's the situation.

A person has gotten tied up in payday loans. This person lives in TX, but the payday loans came out of Canada (I know..weird). He did everything on-line apparently. When he 'signed up' with this payday loan place, he also signed what he calls a 'wage garnishment agreement'.

The question - since wage garnishment is NOT valid in TX except for child support and IRS debts - he wants to know if this 'wage garnishment agreement' he signed is enforceable ? Would state law prevail in this case ??

Thanks !!

I don't think that it would be, but I have never researched whether one can voluntarily waive the protection from wage garnishment. The friend could argue that the agreement unenforceable as being againt public policy and/or as an agreement to perform an illegal act (like prostitution or hiring a hit-woman).

Thanks Tex :D

I'll pass along the information. I figure its a standard form this payday loan place uses regardless of state laws and besides, their a CANADIAN company !!
