What Is Wage Garnishment?

Wage garnishment is a type of banking restraint that occurs when the court orders that an employer withhold portions of your paycheck and send it directly to the creditor until your debt is resolved. Some debts are more likely to incur wage garnishment than others. For example, student loans, child support, and consumer debts could all potentially lead to wage garnishment. 

There are laws to protect you from excessive wage garnishment and there are legal options for lessening the effect or vacating the garnishment entirely. It is important to understand that your employer will be notified if there is an order for wage garnishment and in some cases, creditors may take more than legally allowed. You may pursue legal action with the help of an attorney.
