Normally the maximum is 25% of wages.

In Texas, wages may be garnished for child support, alimony, taxes, and student loans. Garnishment requires your employer to withhold a certain amount of money from your paycheck and then send this money directly to your creditor.

Only a court can enter a judgment for wage garnishment. If you have some kind of child custody or alimony order, you can petition the court for garnishment based on non-payment. If you think she just owes you money, you have to sue her, she has to subsequently default of a judgment against her and then the court can order her wages to be garnished.

depending on the state you live in yes. If the bank forecloses and they get a default judgment against you, they can garnish your wages. Not in Texas though. There are other states that don't allow wage garnishment, except on federal debt

For a persons wages or bank account to be garnished the garnisher must have been awarded a judgment in connection with a lawsuit against the debtor. The exceptions are a garnishment for court ordered child support or spousal maintenance (alimony).

States set their own laws for wage garnishment. Some states do not allow wage garnishment by creditors but will allow it when it pertains to child and/or spousal support, tax arrears and some court ordered restitutions. The maximum allowed is 25% of disposable wages with the first $154.50 being totally exempt. In most states the percentage is lower and can also be modified or increased by the judge issuing the garnishment order. The 25% maximum does not apply to child support.depends on what state you live in....google state wage garnishments and a list of all the states should pop up and you will be able to pick your state and it should go into detail about wage garnishments about your state..any amount the court deems adequateThe maximum garnishment is 25% of disposable income with the first $154.50 of weekly wages exempt. Many states establish their own garnishment amounts rather instead of using federal guidelines. If the state of residency's garnishment amount is less than that of the 25% federal that is the percentage used. South Carolina, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Texas do not allow wage garnishment for creditor debt, several other states that allow garnishment set the exempted weekly wage much higher than the federal $154.50 allowance. All garnishment action is subject to appeal and modification if it constitutes an undue hardship upon the garnishee or the garnishee's dependents. These guidelines apply to creditor debt only and not to federal or state income tax garnishments or a garnishment for child support and in some cases,spousal maintenance (alimony).The court will determine the amount of the garnish. You need to tell the court ALL your financial circumstances.
