Your wages are being garnished. You understand the debt and you don't deny that it exists. You're not contesting based on the fact that you think it's inaccurate. That doesn't mean you can't contest the garnishment at all.
If your wages are going to be garnished, the first thing you're probably wondering is exactly how much can legally be taken out of each paycheck. There are a few factors in play here, such as how much you make and how close your income level is to the poverty line.
If you've been ordered to pay child support and you're looking for a way to get rid of all of your debt, you may consider bankruptcy. If so, remember that bankruptcy does not have any impact on child support itself. If your wages are being garnished because you haven't paid, for example, that will still continue even if your case is successful.
Wage garnishment can be a punitive and troubling element in any person's life. Your income and paychecks are obviously vital to your ability to live your life and pay for things that are basic and crucial. So when an outside entity has the ability to come in and claim a portion of your wages due to a debt that is owed, it can make an already stressful situation even worse for the debtor.
