Can unemployment be garnished by creditors in New Jersey?
Generally speaking, most states only allow garnishment from unemployment compensation for spousal or child support. Check with your local state unemployment office for clarifi…cation.
I'm not an attorney, but generally any benefit payments from retirement/unemployment/social security/disability cannot be garnished. however, creditors will try to bank levy y…ou in this situation. the trick is don't deposit any money where your benefits go, other than the benefits. A bank levy can be a tricky form of garnishment in this case. if you put any money into a particular account besides your benefits, then they can levy the entire account. maybe keep a separate account JUST for your benefits and take care never to make any deposit, other than the check or direct deposit from your benefits. You may stil get levied on that account, but you can prove it was benefits only and get your money back.
You had to work 20 weeks during the 52 week period in the last 5 quarters before filing.
In general unemployment benefits can only be garnished for child support, spousal maintenance and state and/or federal tax arrearages. However, state laws are enacted and amen…ded quite frequently. The questioner should research garnishment laws that apply in his or her state of residency. Or a better option would be to seek legal counsel/confirmation of garnishment action from a qualified organization or person(s).

If you live in Pennsylvania but were laid off in New Jersey do you file for unemployment in New Jersey?
Yes, you would file in New Jersey because it is the "liable state" that collected your employer's taxes to pay for your benefits.
I JUST spoke to a person that is part of Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University - a certified consultant/counselor and he stated that creditors cannot garmish unemploy…ment checks or the wages earned via an unemployment claim. Additionally, when I spoke to the main FPU number in TN, the counselor online stated that creditors cannot garnish SS and disability pensions/wages, either.
I found the trick. Here are the numbers: 732-761-2020 and 2021 732-761-2029 201-601-4100 856) 507-2340. Call each one the 732 ones usually work, when they tell you the ti…me will be 20 minutes it WILL BE, so I put the phone down and check every 5-10 min, and after about 15-20 min, you do get an operator, every time, but I usually move between the 732 numbers, and get an operator and you can get an operator.

A judgment creditor can levy a bank account(s) held by the judgment debtor. An account can be frozen by the court when it appears that funds might be removed and/or trans…ferred to avoid the judgment levy or to allow the judgment debtor to claim exempted funds in the account(S) or when the account is jointly held by a person who is not a judgment debtor. A joint account holder who is not a judgment debtor is required to present documents proving to the court the amount of funds that belong to them and which are not subject to a judgment levy. In some instances when an account is held jointly by a married couple and only one spouse is the named debtor the entire account will be exempted from a judgment creditor levy.
Answer . The law allows only one garnishment procedure at a time, they are taken in priority; for example a wage garnishment for child support would supercede a garnishment… for credit card debt. The maximum for creditor debt in N.Y. is 10% of gross income (income before any deductions). The maximum for child support is 25% of disposable income (income left after state and federal taxes, social security, medicare, pension, etc.) When pertaining to garnishment by creditor lawsuits the law allows the state percentage to be used if it is lower than the federal amount. Pursuant to federal law, the first $154.50 of weekly income is exempt from garnishment.
Answer The attorney could request that the court order garnishment on wages, but the general order must come from the court judge or magistrate.
10% of adjusted gross income or 25% of disposable income. If you make less then 175.50 they can't granish you. Here you go, 10% gross 25% of disposal earnings whichever …is less but no execution on gross wages of $154.50 or less a week (Source: 15 USC, 1671 et seq,: 29 C. F. R., 5870; N.J.S.A. 2A: 17-50).
