My Husband Received a Writ of Garnishment. What Now? – Natalie

Written by Steve Rhode

“Dear Steve,

My husband has received a writ for garnishment of wages for a debt of 2,200 dollars. The default judgement was placed against him for failure to answer and now he’s facing garnishment.

He only earns about $100 per week. Can his wages be garnished?

What can be done?

We don’t have shared accounts or property but we live in a communual property state. Can my wages be garnished?

Dear Natalie,

This is really a question for an attorney that is licensed in your state if you need specific advice.

But if you can give me some additional information, post it in the comments, about what state you can live in I can give you some general information about your state.

Not every state allows wages to be garnished and all have limits on what can be subtracted from wages.

Please post your responses and follow-up messages to me on this in the comments section below.
