wage garnishment?

I have been notified by a collection attorney that a judgment has been entered against me and they intended to garnish my wages. I completed the questionnaire they sent me and returned it with a letter requesting a payment arrangement. I told them when I’d send the first payment if I did not get a response from them declining my payment offer. They accepted my payment (2 weeks ago) and still sent the garnishment order to my work (it is a small office and I’m the top). Since I am the one responsible for doing payroll and complying with the laws, I’m wondering what options I have. Does their acceptance of my payment imply acceptance of that arrangement? If I have to proceed with garnishing my own wages and writing out the check to them, can I just pay the ordered amount myself with a money order or does it have to be on a company check?

Wage garnishment varies state by state. Some states will exempt 100% of the head of the household income (Florida for example) and some will exempt a certain percentage of ones income. Other states follow the Federal Guidlines (check them at this link http://www.bcsalliance.com/ccpa_15usc1673.html

First look up your states laws at the following web site to make sure they are not trying to get more then they are allowed.


Some states require payments be made to the court who then passes along the funds to the creditor.
As you are the “one” who does the payroll, then yes you would have to follow your states requirements as to paying the garnishment.

Hope this answers your question.
