Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Business litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.
Only 25% of your disposable income is subject to garnishment, and the first garnishment filed must be paid before the next one begins.
Thus, multiple garnishments can't occur at the same time. Instead, your first garnishment would have to complete, and then the second could start. Thus, the garnishments can both attach to your wages, but they can only do so one at a time.
THANK YOU ...
? are you based in Minnesota ?
? how do I contact you if future need arises ?
