Ohio follows federal garnishment guidelines which allow a maximum of 25% of the garnishee's disposable income to be seized, with the first $154.50 weekly based income being exempted. Child support, alimony, disability benefits, public assistance, and all Social Security benefits are 100% exempt from garnishment by a judgment creditor. The judgment creditor must serve (or make a reasonable attempt to deliver) a 15 day notice to the named garnishee before the action can commence. Other personal and real property that can be exempted from judgment creditor attachment are outlined in Ohio BK exemption statutes. Please note, it is the responsibility of the judgment debtor to claim the allowed exemptions.

The date the judgment was entered. In some states there is a short period before the decree becomes absolute but the date of the decree is the date the judgment was entered.

The creditor would need to obtain a lawsuit judgment from the Texas court before wage garnishment would be allowed. Texas only allows garnishment of wages when there are no other means for a judgment creditor to collect a debt owed. If a judgment has already been entered against the debtor in a different state, the judgment creditor can place a "foreign" judgment lien against property owned by the debtor.
