I am assuming what you are asking is whether the gross receipts can be seized by a creditor with a judgment against you. The answer to that is yes, a lien can be placed or a garnishment can be issued in which the gross receipts are seized from whoever is supposed to pay them to you.
There's no limit since it isn't wages.
Are you getting the monies paid directly to you or do you own a corporation which receives the monies and are then disbursed to you?
There's no limit then.
What you may want to consider is incorporating quickly and then having the monies paid to the corporation and then you pay yourself a salary from the corporation. That would allow you to deduct the expenses and provide some protection from a judgment.
As it stands you don't have any protections and they can seize all of the payments.
Did you have additional questions?
