Best Answer

The state allows for the maximum federal amount of 25% of disposable income. The court reserves the power to reduce the percentage to a minimum of 15% if the garnishee can provide evidence that a higher rate would constitute an undue hardship upon themselves and/or dependents. (A.R.S. ~12-1598)

The rule is the debt collector is bound by the laws of the state the collection action is being taken in. If the debt collector is not licensed or authorized in that state, it cannot legally act to collect the debt. Check with your state agency that licenses debt collectors. The debt collector can retain a local attorney to collect the debt, of course, and that would be under Michigan Law.
