    Default What's the Maximum Amount of a Bank Garnishment for a Monthly Income of $238.00

    My question involves judgment recovery in the State of:Missouri
    I currently have a bank garnishment for $1,665.07 for credit card debt. I was told that judgement took effect on May 12,2011 and I never received a court summons from a deputy or judgement letter from my bank until I went there today. I'm in the Guard and only get paid once a month and each month I get paid $238.00 after all taxes and deductions thru Direct Deposit. This is the only money I receive in this checking account and depend on this to pay my bills. What's the maximum amount they can deduct from $238.00 a month and what will be left and can I withdrawl what's left? Thanks

    Once the money is in the account, all of it is fair game.

    Thanks! I thought they could only take 25% leaving me $178.50 to live on! I'm going to the courthouse tomorrow to: File an order to show cause/motion to vacate judgement due to improper service. I would've had my say in court or possibly make payment arrangements with the garnisher had I known there was a hearing on April 19,2011. I never received a Summons from a deputy or anything from the courthouse. I checked my account May 21st and thats how I discovered the garnishment! The bank made a copy of the judgement for me! Talk about improper service!
