My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am one of JustAnswer's attorneys. I'll be helping you resolve your matter today.
Please remember that there might be a delay between your follow up questions and my answers because I may be helping other clients or taking a break.
I am sorry that you find yourself in this situation. MI follows federal law, and federal statute limits withhold up to 25% of disposable earnings per week, unless the debtor's earnings are at or near the minimum wage
, 15 USC 1673, in which case no withholding is allowed.They can only garnish an account that has her name on it, not yours (i.e. only her separate one, or joint).
Best of luck in your matter. I'm here if you need any more clarification or follow up information.
I hope you found my answer helpful, and if so please click on the ACCEPT button. This is the only way for me to get credit for my work - when you put in your payment information, I receive no credit for my time with you unless you press ACCEPT.

Remember, sometimes the law under which your situation falls does not give you the outcome or the choices you wanted - please understand that this is not the attorney's fault, but the way of circumstance.
