Can allied garnish my wages?

Was this a Federally backed student loan or was it from a private lender? If this was federally backed, then yes, they can have your wages garnished and would not need to go to court to do it. If privately funded, they would first need to obtain a judgement against you and then attempt to garnish. What state do you live in?

Allied collects for the US Department of Education plus several FFELP guarantors so yes, they can do administrative wage garnishment in all 50 states.

Do not write to If they are threatening garnishment, it is extrememly time sensitive and they will not negotiate in writing.
