I Am a Special Education Teacher and Facing a Wage Garnishment for My Student Loans. – Lucinda

“Dear Steve,

I am an special education teacher, been teaching 9 years. My student loans have been garnished, taxes taken as well for the last three years. with the incoming coming out of my paycheck, i lost my apartment twice. The second time, i had lost my teaching certificate for a few months and job position. I am not teaching again, special education again in a high risk high school. I had to move in with my dad. I just got my own apartment.

They have not started to garnish my check again, as I am working for a charter school, not with the county school district. I can’t afford to lose my apartment again. I have an 11 year old daughter, and there is no place to move to if i lose my apartment. As my dad sold the house he lived in and moved in with my nephew. My husband has been out of work, and has recently left.

How do i find good legal help to help me fix this mess? I don’t know who to call for help? Can you help?


Dear Lucinda,

What kind of loans do you have? Are they a mixture of government backed and private? Can you give me some more details please?
