The total garnishments from your wages cannot exceed the maximum allowed under MI law (so either the 25% or 30 times the Federal minimum wage, whichever is less).
So if you are already being garnished for 25%, then there cannot be any additional garnishments.
For help responding to the garnishment petition (including forms - located on the right hand column): http://courts.mi.gov/self-help/center/collect/pages/garnishing-money.aspx
Is your alimony actually being garnished, or are you simply paying your alimony with an automatic debit?
While I do not have all of your dissolution paperwork that supports the alimony deductions, I would speculate that this is a "voluntary" payment to satisfy your alimony obligation, it is not a garnishment that would count towards that 25% value.
However, if you do read through the information I provided to you above, you can use the alimony deductions when approaching the court about setting up a payment plan and/or attempting to limit the amount of money that the creditor can garnish. (Again the court forms located on the right hand side of the Court's webpage can be used for either purpose).
