Wage Garnishment 

Limits are placed on how much a creditor can garnish from your paycheck by Federal Law.  If you have more than one judgement against you for  wage garnishment, in many cases, only one creditor can garnish wages at a single time. A creditor may garnish wages for 60 days. After this time period, they serve a new Writ of Garnishment, allowing them to garnish for another 60 days. Until the debt is paid, the creditor may take wage garnishment action.
Federal Law protects employees from being fired because their wages are being garnished – if the wages are garnished for a single debt. If the garnishment is for two or more debts, an employer may terminate employment. A wage garnishment will stay on your credit report for seven years. Typically, a garnishment cannot be removed from the record after it is reported.
