Is there a certain percent they can take out of SSD income for back child support? They up what they were taking from $235.00 to over $700.00 so they are getting about 40% of my check.
The answer depends on your jurisdiction. In Arizona, the maximum that they can garnish is 25% but it could easily be higher in California. Contact a local attorney or legal aid society to see if there is a way to reduce the garnishment. Here in Arizona, if the garnishee can show financial hardship, the judge has discretion to lower the garnishment to 15%.
