This is attorney Bill offering assistance.

It seems that the judgment debtor is seeking to enforce the judgment and garnish your salary or bank account ?

What exactly is stated in the order to show cause ?

Have you any defenses to the debt enforcement ?

Do you have a copy of the order that you can submit to me ?

Thanks

Bill

Thanks for your follow up.

In Kentucky the maximum level of garnishment allowed is 25% of your disposable income or 30 times the federal minimum wage rate. There are certaain exceptions to this including the child support arrears.

REMEMBER TO RATE GOOD TO GREAT BEFORE EXITING TODAY

Lawyer: Bill Attorney, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

That’s correct I outlined either 25 % of disposable income or income greater than 30 times the federal minimum wage.

I would need to review your documents to provide more information.
