Hi I racked up credit card debt to pay for my tution and now that I have graduated and got a well paying job I paid of most of my previous debt . there were a few accounts that were with collections that I paid off. I fell behind on one and before I could make amends, an order was given by a court to garnish my wage I am really worried abt that showing on my report . Is it ok to contact the lawyer and repay the amount or would the judjement show up on my report even if I pay that amount in full.

My suggestion is to do the following: 1. Go to www.truecredit.com and order up all three of your credit reports. (Equifax, Experian and Trans Union) You could try and get your "free annual" reports but those can take time to process. 2. You need to review your reports. Chances are there is lots of information on them that are inaccurate. You absolutely want to dispute entries on your reports that are truthfully not yours. 3. You absolutely want to hire the Lexington Law Firm. (Google them, they're fairly inexpensive) Do NOT go with a non-profit debt consolidation company. 4. You need to go on the offensive and protect your interests. Finally, a collection agent or attorney CAN NOT garnish your wages unless they have won a judgment against you. Even if they have, you need to fight it, challenge the validity of the judgment. Your financial future is at stake. These people will eat you alive and feed you to the pit bulls unless you put the fear of the Lord into them.
