Unfortunately for the consumer Louisiana is considered to be a "creditor friendly" state. Garnishment is allowed and the federal guidelines are used. The amount of garnishment usually granted is the maximum of 25% of disposable income with the first $154.50 being exempt from attachment. The garnishment order is effective immediately upon service, the employer must withold the amount weekly and submit it monthly to the court.
