Do they have a judgment against you?If not they cannot garnish a thing.If they do they can garnish up to 20% of each paycheque until the amount is paid off.It is off net pay in most cases.

Thank you for your response you were very helpful
Expert:  Debra replied 1 year ago.
You are very welcome. Also, you may read that they can garnish up to 50% online. Those sites are wrong or at least not clear. The 50% only applies to spousal or child support. That is the one exception to the main rule of 20%.I hope this works out. If we are done please rate me now so that I can receive credit for my work.
