Is it true that 154.50 is exempt from the maximum percent amount for Ohio garnishments?

Here is a portion of a letter called "Notice of Court Proceedings to Collect a Debt" which each person must receive prior to any garnishment being filed in an Ohio court. It will help you figure out how much money will be garnished: 1. Total amount of indebtedness demanded: (1) $____________ 2. Enter the amount of your personal earnings, after deductions required by law, earned by you during the current pay period that is, the pay period in which this demand is received by you: $____________________ 3. I deleted this one, it isn't necessary right now. 4. Enter an amount equal to 25% of the amount on line (2): $________________ 5. (A) The current federal hourly minimum wage is $5.85. If you are paid weekly, enter thirty times the current federal minimum hourly wage; if paid biweekly, enter sixty times the current federal minimum wage; if paid semimonthly, enter sixty-five times the current federal minimum hourly wage; if paid monthly, enter one hundred thirty times the current federal minimum hourly wage: (5)(A) $____________________. (B) Enter the amount by which the amount on line (2) exceeds the amount on line 5 (A): $_________________ 6. Enter the smallest of the amounts on line (1), (4), or 5(B):_________________ The amount on line 6 is what will be taken from your pay. So let's say you get paid $500 (after taxes) every 2 weeks. Your debt is $1000. Line 1: $1000 Line 2: $500 Line 3: skip it Line 4: 25% of $500 = $125.00 Line 5(A): $5.85 multiplied by 60 = $351 Line 5(B): $149 L:ine 6: the smallest amount of lines 1, 4 or 5(A) is line 4 so the amount you would be garnished is $125 each pay. This letter that you get is an opportunity to voluntarily pay this amount. It's also called a "15 day letter" because you get 15 days to take advantage of this offer. It is better to pay from this letter because you won't get garned. It also spells out what your options are and what funds are not subject to garnishment. Here's a link to a sample of the whole "Notice of Court Proceedings to Collect a Debt": The cheapest thing to do, if at all possible, is to contact the creditor and see if you can set up a payment plan. or negotiate a settlement figure (borrow from someone and pay this off). Sometimes you can negotiate for a percentage of what you owe. You will save a bunch of money in interest and any court costs or fees that can be passed along to you. barbe

Which is the least preferred contract type because it places the greatest risk on the government?

T&M Time and Material (T&M ) contracts are used for acquiring supplies or services on the basis of direct labor hours at specified fixed hourly rates that include wages, overhead, general and administrative expenses, and profit; and materials at cost. They may be used only when it is not possible at the time of placing the contract to estimate accurately the ex tent or duration of the work or to anticipate costs with any reasonable degree of confidence. Because it places the most risk on the Government, T&M is the least preferred contract type.

What role does the government play in your live?

To answer your question, I will quote the Constitution. "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity......" Those words are the sum of the purpose of government in this country. I cant really think of a more "to the point" answer for you on this one. Please let me know if this answers your question.
