Can child support garnish financial aid?
Yes and no. Pell Grants and Student Loans are exempt from garnishment by federal law. This money will go directly to your college and pay for books and such. School must be paid for first. However, a bona fide loop hole does exist: If you recive a left over rebate from your college and deposit those funds into a bank account, it's fair game. This is why you burn all left over money from your school up or ask your school to give you a check instead of a bank transfer. Just sign that check over to someone else. Because if you're scared that your pell grant or student loan is going to be intercepted, it's obvious you have a garnishment order if effect on your bank accounts, paycheck, income tax check and ect, lol. Do the right thing you guys, and make a payment plan with the state to stop most enforcement efforts.
