Response . The law only allows for an attachment procedure in a moment, they are taken in priority; for example, a wage garnishment for child support might replace one yet for the credit card debt. The maximum by the creditor of the debt in new york is 10% of the gross income (income before deductions). The maximum for child support is 25% of disposable income (income left after state and federal taxes, social security, medicare, pension plans, etc) When it comes to liens of claims of creditors, the law allows the state percentage to be used if it is lower than the federal amount. In accordance with the federal law, the first $154.50 of weekly income is exempt from garnishment.
