My son is in college and has lived with me since his 7th grade. They started garnishing my checks after a few months ago for the arrears I owe. I can't pay that and also help my son financially get thru college. I have a court case coming up because I want the interest owed reduced and the garnish amt reduced. I have 2 other kids. The county clerk told me that the judge can't do anything about that. Is this true? Should I hire a lawyer to fight my case?
