Answer Yes. N.C. does not allow wage garnishment for creditor debt. It does allow garnishment for court ordered spousal maintenance and/or child support.
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… regarding 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.
If you owe back alimony or regularly fail to pay on time, they can get a court order and take the money owed with a garnishment. A garnishment can be up to 50% of your total i…ncome until amount owed is paid.
No Benefits and refunds payable by pension or retirement funds are exempt and not subject to deduction orders. 735 ILCS 5/12-804. See also the exemptions listed in the section… below for non-wage garnishments. 735 ILCS 5/12-1006 exempts a debtor's interest in pensions, annuities, benefits, distributions, refunds of contributions or other payments under certain retirement plans. Compare to 735 ILCS 5/12-704 which exempts from garnishment benefits and refunds payable by pension or retirement funds and any assets of employees held by such funds. Cf. MacKey v. Lanier Collections Agency, 486 U.S. 825 (1988).
There is no wage garnishment in Texas for most debts and judgments, so the literal answer is 0%. That's for unpaid credit cards, old medical bills, etc. They can take every pe…nny you have in the bank, but they can't take it out of your paycheck. Exceptions would be for taxes, child support or Chapter 13 bankruptcy payments. By filling out the proper form, you can limit what the Dallas office of the IRS takes to a maximum of $179.81 per week. For child support, there is a sliding scale depending on how much you make, how many total children you have, and whether those children have all the same parents or only have the 1 parent (you) in common. That sliding scale is in the Texas Family Code. For Chapter 13 bankruptcy, there is no set maximum amount. Instead, it is calculated by a combination of the Means Test (Form B22) and your Schedule J ("total income" minus "total expenses"). The bankruptcy judge and trustee use those budgets to calculate how much you can afford to pay but still leaving you with plenty to live on.
25% of your disposable income (per check) . 50% if it is about child support. Child support also takes priority over other garnishments.

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 supp…ort, federally 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
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.

In State Laws

Answer States set their own laws for wage garnishment. Some states do not allow wage garnishment by creditors but will allow it when it pertains to child an…d/or spousal support, tax arrears and some court ordered restitutions. The maximum allowed is 25% of disposable wages with the first $154.50 being totally exempt. In most states the percentage is lower and can also be modified or increased by the judge issuing the garnishment order. The 25% maximum does not apply to child support. depends on what state you live in....google state wage garnishments and a list of all the states should pop up and you will be able to pick your state and it should go into detail about wage garnishments about your state.. any amount the court deems adequate Answer The maximum garnishment is 25% of disposable income with the first $154.50 of weekly wages exempt. Many states establish their own garnishment amounts rather instead of using federal guidelines. If the state of residency's garnishment amount is less than that of the 25% federal that is the percentage used. South Carolina, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Texas do not allow wage garnishment for creditor debt, several other states that allow garnishment set the exempted weekly wage much higher than the federal $154.50 allowance. All garnishment action is subject to appeal and modification if it constitutes an undue hardship upon the garnishee or the garnishee's dependents. These guidelines apply to creditor debt only and not to federal or state income tax garnishments or a garnishment for child support and in some cases,spousal maintenance (alimony). The court will determine the amount of the garnish. You need to tell the court ALL your financial circumstances.
This depends on your state. I would imagine most places follow the same exemptions so I'll offer you my local knowledge. In Illinois child support is exempt. Normally an…ything that already has a pre-determined use (e.g. child support is considered spent on children's needs, food, school supplies etc. and therefore exempt). Alimony is also exempt.
The maximum wage garnishment in Indiana is 25%. This is something that is federally mandated and may be reduced under certain circumstances.
