Tax/payroll deduction question.Both of our student loans are

Resolved Question:

Tax/payroll deduction question.Both of our student loans are in default. I am housewife, my husband works. We were sent garnishment order on January...have been garnishing 15% of net income since then. We filed taxes they seized our refund on my loan. Filed injured spouse...then, they sized on husband's loan. We are obviously on hard times, is it possible for GC services to garnish abd seize? Is there any way to recoup some or all of the money or stop garnishment?

Thanks in, advance.
