I don't know the $$ amount they can take. That's based on you salary and rent. However, they can and will garnish you salary if you owe child support or fines. If you quit your job because of this, they will send out a bench warrent and arrest you. I know this because I have an ex-husband that tried this. I hope I answered your question. If not, post it again and someone else may have a better answer.

How tall should you be to sit in the front seat?

I think you should be at least 5 feet tall, but there is no law for height. There is only a law for age, but it's a state law so it's different everywhere. For example, if you live somewhere where the state law is you have to be 14 (This is off the top of my head but in NJ its 12) and you travel to NJ (New Jersey) where it is 12, and you're thirteen, then you can sit in the front. Hope this helps ;)
