Hello, My Name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your question today.

A creditor can garnish 25% of your disposable income or the amount by which your disposable income exceeds 30 times federal minimum wage, whichever is less. In North Carolina, if your disposable income is less than 30 times federal minimum wage, your wages cannot be garnished at all.

If a court from another state (Nevada) issues a valid order under that state’s laws requiring an employer to withhold a North Carolina employee’s wages for payment of a debt, the employer does not violate the North Carolina Wage and Hour Act by obeying that order. For further questions regarding this particular legal issue, you will need to contact a private attorney.
