The State of Oklahoma allows a judgment creditor to garnish the wages of a judgment debtor in one of two ways: a non-continuing garnishment, which applies to only one pay period, or a continuing wage garnishment, which lasts for 180 days. Generally, a judgment credit may only garnish up to 25% of a judgment debtor's wages. However, if the judgment debtor establishes hardship, the amount that the judgment creditor may garnish is reduced.
The applicable statute is 12 O.S. 1171. You can view the statute here: http://www.lsb.state.ok.us/osstatuestitle.html
