Your "disposable earnings" are those remaining after social security and federal and state income taxes are withheld. Your earnings are completely exempt from garnishment if: 1.

A debt amortization under §128.21 or a bankruptcy order under 11 USC 1301 to 1330. 2. For the support of any person; or, 3. Unpaid taxes. If you qualify for a complete exemption or a limitation in the amount subject to garnishment, you must give or mail a copy of the completed enclosed debtor's answer form to the garnishee/employer. If your circumstances change while the garnishment is in effect, you may file a new answer form at any time. If you do not qualify for a complete exemption or limitation but will not be able to acquire the necessities of life for yourself and your dependents if your earnings are reduced by this earnings garnishment, you may ask the court in which this earnings garnishment was filed to increase your exemption or grant you other relief. IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE, CONSULT AN ATTORNEY If you have garnished earnings that are exempt, limited or subject to a defense, the sooner you file your answer form with the garnishee/employer or seek relief from the court, the sooner such relief can be provided. This earnings garnishment affects your earnings in pay periods beginning within 13 weeks after it was served on the garnishee/employer. You may agree in writing with the creditor to extend it for additional 13-week periods until the debt is paid. PENALTIES If you wrongly claim an exemption or defense in bad faith, or if the creditor wrongly objects to your claim in bad faith, the court may order the person who acted in bad faith to pay court costs, actual damages and reasonable attorney fees.
