Federal law allows up to 50% of your social security income to be garnished for alimony; however, if this is causing a hardship for you, you can file a motion to quash the garnishment and ask for a reduction in the amount they are garnishing. You will have to provide proof of the hardship to the judge. Please just let me know if you have any more questions. If not, please don't forget to click on the green accept button in the answer box so that I can receive credit for helping you. It is the only way I can receive compensation for my time and it will charge you nothing further to press accept. Thanks so much.
