My sister is having her wages garnished for medical bills. What is the max that they can take from her check? Would she be better off claiming head of household since she has two small children and only gets child support from one of the father's and nothing to this date court ordered from the second?
She is planning on filing for bankrutpcy as she has no other choice and other bills that have piled up because of the reduced income due to the garnishment, they are taking I believe 25% of her income each check, does that sound right? Something like $260.00 every two weeks.
Any advice on this situation would be greatly appreciated.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
