My husband (soon to be the ex) had a vehicle financing, went delinquent on it and doesn't even own the vehicle anymore. I was in no way related to any of his decisions. We're separated now and will be having our divorce soon. How can the lender try to garnish my wages?

I understand that you were not involved in the decisions. But, did you sign on any documents related to financing or maybe on a promissory note? Consult an attorney with all the documents.

I don't know which state you're from and whether it's a community property state or not.

It's not even clear that how the lender is trying to garnish your wages.

Are they threatening you? or have the garnishment order from the court?

Creditors can't garnish your wages unless they have a court judgement against you.
