yes, you can be garnished.....I work for a vehicle finance company and yes, your wages can and will be garnished if you have a deficient unpaid balance. It is always best to call the finance company, bank, or personal financer before being taken to court for garnishment, because you can also be acessed court & attorney fees as well. Also any time you are taken to court for an unpaid bill it can become part of your credit report. If you & the finance company chose to settle based on an agreement fair to them & to yourself without having to go to court then you also can in some cases protect your credit from being tarnished again by having a court judgment against you. Some places also offer lower interest rates then what the courts would access.

Can wages be garnished for the balance of car loan if the vehicle was turned in for repossession in Maryland?

Yes. Even though the vehicle was repoed, they could take you to court for the remaining balance, or what they didn't recover through resale of the vehicle. You would be notified that you are being sued, and have the opportunity to go to court in your defense. If the court finds in favor of the lender (which they generally do), you could have your wages garnished. That may be the point where you have to decide if bankruptcy may be right for you. Bankruptcy would stop those proceedings and keep your wages from being garnished.
