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 supporting 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.
