Personal Loans and Garnishments

Over the course of the last 5 years or so, my aunt has loaned me a sum of $12,000. $7,000 was for a car she helped me purchase and the other $5,000 was for wedding expenses. I agreed to pay her back verbally. I did not sign any IOU's or contracts or anything for that matter. I have paid her when I could and whatever amount I could afford at the time. She has always said not to worry about it. Now, she and my family are not talking due to some family dispute. I have been told that she is now seeking garnishment of my wages. Can she do that? Am I legally bound to pay her back? What should I do if she tries to garnish my wages?

Thank you for your time.
