Certainly, as long as the income belongs to the debtor. A creditor could not enforce a wage garnishment against co-debtor spouses simultaneously. Wage garnishment must run consecutively not at the same time. Similarly, the creditor could not execute a wage garnishment against the double of the income of the debtor(s). For example, if the debtor worked two part time jobs the embargo could only be enforced as a singular judgment against one of the income.
