First of all...Did you receive a copy of the writ from payroll? They legally have to give you a copy. You can only be garnished 25% of disposable earnings for a consumer debt.

My job is dealing with garnishments..If there is anything I can help you with, please pm me, I'd be more than happy to help..I will need more info about the situation, though.

um, they HAVE to give you a copy, it's irresponsible and illegal not to. So one day you got your check, and there was money missing from it? In the bottom of your stub there should be a box for deductions..what does it say? Go to your payroll person RIGHT AWAY!!!!

Do you have any more details about the situation? do you know who is garnishing you? You have options, you need that info!!! Go to payroll, and call your local court for the docket number. PM me when you get your info.

Discover Card I think, but I went on the court website and put in my name, but nothing came up regarding a garnishment.

no, it probably wouldn't say anything on the website...Call your court for the docket number. Then you can call Discover, it's never too late to TRY to work out alternative arrangements. It's highly irresponsible that your payroll dept didn't give you a copy. I know I could get fined for not giving a garnishee a copy, but I don't know how that works in other states. Regardless, it's just professional courtesy and proper protocol. Make sure you get a copy of the writ from them, and get the docket number. Please let me know if I can help you.

My sister had someone try to garnish her check but she sent a letter to her payroll department refusing it and they immediately stopped taking the garnishment.
