Writ of Garnishment
Asked May 3, 2008, 07:54 AM
I live in Florida and have a question about two separate Garnishments on my pay.
I received a notice of Writ of Garnishment yesterday. I already have one being taken out of my pay check to the max allowed by Florida Law (25%). This one is a new one from another company. Can they also collect from my pay check each week leaving little to nothing to support my family? I am head of household with a child in support.
I did have one before and contested it based on Head of Household but the Judge decided to side with the other side and I ended up with the money coming out of my check anyway. I ask these questions because I fear the same judge and same judgement even though Florida law exempts Head of Household.
