How Much Can My Wages Be Garnished? – Nancy

“Dear Steve,

I have an old crdeit card debt that has recently sent me a notification that my wages are to be garnished. My question is if I make $900 in two week payperiod how much will they take out of my check? I have alot of other bills and I’m afraid they won’t leave me enought to pay those.

How much will they take from my check? Also I just started working in July, can/will they garnish my previous checks?


Dear Nancy,

It really depends on what state you live in. See this previous post on wage garnishments.

Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.


P.S. Be sure to read ‘The Secret of Surviving Through Difficult Economic Times. What I Learned On My Journey‘.
