Question: How Much Can Be Garnished for Child Support or Alimony?
Answer:

The Consumer Credit Protection Act limits the amount your wages can be garnished to cover child support or spousal support. If you are supporting another spouse or child, a maximum of 50% can be garnished. If you are not, up to 60% of your wages can be garnished.
