Answer . \nYes. N.C. does not allow wage garnishment for creditor debt. It does allow garnishment for court ordered spousal maintenance and/or child support.
Answer . \nNone, all states allow wage garnishment if it pertains to child support, spousal maintenance, state and federal taxes
At present four U.S. states - North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Texas - do not allow wage garnishment at all except for debts related to taxes, child support, f…ederally guaranteed student loans, and court-ordered fines or restitution for a crime the debtor committed. Normally the maximum is 25% of wages.
15% of weekly gross or 45 times min wage

Weekly: $154.50 or …75% of Disposable Earnings Bi-weekly: $309.00; or 75% of Disposable Earnings Semi-monthly $334.75 or 75% of Disposable Earnings Monthly: $669.50 or 75% of Disposable earnings. The quote above is the EXEMPT amount, not the amount that can be garnished! . See link for full information.
25% of your disposable income (per check) . 50% if it is about child support. Child support also takes priority over other garnishments.

Percentages vary by State, for most debts the states average is 20-25% of your gross income...For child support the states average is 25-50% of your gross income...
In most states the total garnishment cannot exceed 49% of an individuals income.
You can find the garnishment statutes in the Illinois Compiled Statutes starting at the section 735 ILCS 5/12-701.. The Illinois Garnishment statute sets out the law regardin…g the garnishment of a third party such as an employer, insurer or other parties that might hold assets of another. For example, if you get into a car accident and you are sued and a judgment is entered against you, the plaintiff/judgment creditor might file a garnishment against your insurance seeking payment of the judgment from your insurance company.. In other cases, a judgment creditor might garnish your bank to take the money from your accounts.. You can look up the sections of the statute at your local law library or online. There are several websites with the exact language of the statute.
Yes, wages can be garnished in Illinois.
It's taxable income, so yes.
Yes. However, the Consumer Credit Protection Act limits the amount. Your wages can be garnished up to a maximum of 50% to cover child and/or spousal support if you are support…ing another spouse or child. If you are not supporting another child and/or spouse, up to 60% of your wages can be garnished. Generally, no more than 25 percent of a person's wages is garnished.
