S.C. does not have a code that directly forbids garnishment of wages. However, the law is applied in such a way that it makes garnishment almost impossible for the average person. The house is another issue, S.C. has very limited homestead protection, $5,000 (can be doubled for marrried couples). Even so creditors seldom use a forced sale of a primary residence due to the difficulty and expense. It would be wise to consult an attorney as to the exact application of the law. Most attorneys offer free or minimal fee consultations. (S.C. Codes.. Title 15 Civil Remedies and Procedures, Chapter 41m Sections 15-41-30.) www.scstatehouse.net
