What is a Wage Garnishment?

It can be defined as "a legal procedure in which a person's earnings are required by court order to be withheld by an employer for the payment of a debt such as child support".

In simple terms, it refers to a situation where a court orders your employer to retain a portion of your paycheck and sends the amount to a person or creditor to whom you owe money.

This means you will not get your entire salary, making it difficult to make ends meet. Almost all kinds of earnings can be garnished including wages, bonuses, pensions, commissions, and salaries. However, tips are an exception.

How Does a Wage Garnishment Work?

El Portal Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Lawyer - Stiberman Law Firm
  • A creditor sues you for nonpayment and wins.
  • The court sends a notice to you and your employer.
  • You receive your salary after deductions.

It must be mentioned that creditors are not always required to go to court. In some cases, they may choose to force wage garnishment without going the legal route.

This option is usually available in the following cases:

  • When you owe taxes.
  • When you have to pay child support.
  • When you are late on student loans.

How Much Amount Can be Garnished

In most cases, the amount is 25 percent of your eligible earnings. However, it can go up to 60 percent in case of spousal support and as low as 15 percent in case of student loans and taxes.

Work with an attorney to be sure you’re not being cheated since garnishment laws greatly differ from state to state.
