I would suggest you write "unknown - see attached writ of execution." Then attach a copy of the writ you were served with to the claim of exemption.
By law they should not withhold more than 25% of your wages, your payroll department should know this, or you may want to make sure they are aware of it and do not withhold more than 25%. The filing of an exemption typically does not prevent the wages from being garnished but funds are not disbursed to the creditor until the exemption issue is decided by the court. So if your employer sent in more than 25% of your wages that would be returned to you.
Court dates on these matters are usually scheduled very quickly, usually less than 30 days.
