Wage garnishment
« on: Jul 22, 2004, 01:44:06 PM »
My boyfriend has a fulltime job and has 1/2 of his check garnished for current and back child support. He makes under $800 a month (before taxes).  He recently obtained a second part time job so he can make ends meet. 1/2 of those wages are being garnished as well. We live in Texas. Is that standard procedure?? When he was sued for child support they went according to his $1300 a month salary. Is there a standard percentage they take out for back child support or does that depend on how much he owes?? Seems to me that they are taking the maximum allowed because I know it can't be no more than 50%.  We are thinking about filing a motion to amend those original orders. What steps do we take. Should we bother even calling the attorney general??  Getting an attorney is our next option but we want to know what we can do on our own before we go that final route.

You need an attorney. Period.

He should have filed for a downward modification when he was no longer making better money.

Yes, they WILL take up to 50% of his income.

Any chance you are in the Dallas area?
