Customer Question

JA: The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: no
JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Lawyer can help you best. Please give me a bit more information, so we can help you best.
Customer: i have a wage garnishment hearing tomorrow, and I have been reading that if you are the head of household and provide more than 50 percent of the income, and support for you children then it is possible.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: um i am a single parent with two kids?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

Indiana does not provide a head of household exemption, the same general withholding limits apply to all debtors in the state. Indiana follows federal law. As of 2014, your employer can withhold no more than the lesser of 25 percent of your disposable wages or the amount by which your disposable earnings are greater than 30 times the federal minimum hourly wage.
