Best Answer

The following information came from the NC Dept. of Labor website. Wage garnishments are legal in North Carolina if a North Carolina court or federal court issues a court ordered garnishment for specific items such as, but not limited to, taxes, student loans, child and spouse support, and payment of ambulance services in certain North Carolina counties. The North Carolina Wage and Hour Act (WHA) recognizes legal garnishment court orders in N.C.G.S. 95-25.8(1): "An employer may withhold or divert any portion of an employee's wages when: (1) The employer is required or empowered to do so by State or federal law, ..." Generally, wage garnishments by banks and loan institutes for car loans, credit card debt, and other personal debt items are not legal in North Carolina.
