Can unemployment be garnished by creditors in New Jersey?
Answer . Yes, a creditor or collector can sue for money owed. If they win the lawsuit they will be awarded a judgment which can be used among other options as a wage garnis…hment. The maximum garnishment for the state of New York is 10% of gross income or the Federal maximum (25% of disposable income) whichever is less.
Answer . The attorney could request that the court order garnishment on wages, but the general order must come from the court judge or magistrate.

You had to work 20 weeks during the 52 week period in the last 5 quarters before filing.
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 unemployment c…hecks 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 will have to say no it is exempt income only child support and IRS can the state doesnt want to pay your credit debts
Under Federal Law, there is a limit on whether garnishment applies. In the case of unemployment benefits, unless it is for child or spousal support, the benefits from unemploy…ment or disability cannot be garnished.
No, a creditor cannot garnish unemployment benefits. Under Federal law, unless it's a judgment for spousal or child support, neither unemployment nor worker's compensation can… be garnished.
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 …you 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.
