I received a notice that there is a garnishment on my account and I have questions. Me and my husband have separate accounts and then a joint account. We had our stimulus deposited into our joint account and the entire amount is being held. On my personal account there is another $1300 that shows is on hold. This has been same status for about a month. How long will it be before the money is actually taken from my accounts? While I don't agree with USAA allowing our stimulus to be garnished, I am not disputing the validity of the garnishment. This was in regards to a Home Depot card that my ex husband charged items on and I assumed he was taking care of the bill. I was served to appear in 2011 and when the court date came, my dad had passed and I was out of state. I obviously didn't even think about it and now 9 years later they have garnished. I just want to know when the funds will be removed from my account.
@Mandy's Checking, Thank you for reaching out and sorry to hear this is happening! I would recommend locating your paperwork for the Writ of Garnishment and calling the numbers there for any questions. If you cannot locate your paperwork please call 210-531-8722. Good luck and take care! ~Tom
Check the rules for garnishing on the stimulus. If I remember correctly I believe that there are very few garnishment items that are allowed under the stimulus and USAA should know what is and what is not allowed.
I would also check on the validity of coming after debt after 9 years - every state has a different statue of limitations. But it starts over ANY TIME you have a conversation with them about it.
