Exemptions for Wage Garnishment

My ex has been a realtor off and on (mostly on) since our divorce. I have, to this date, not been able to receive child support from ANY of the real estate companies he has worked for. Do these real estate companies have some kind of “exemption” to wage garnishments.

There are no exemptions from child support wage garnishments. The amount of the garnishment is simply limited to a percentage of his income. You’ll need an attorney to proceed if you intend on garnishing his wages. If properly done, there is no problem as child support garnishments are routine. If he is self employed and owns these companies, he can evade the garnishment since he has control over the money. You might bring your child support order to Child Support Enforcement in the county where the divorce occurred. They do not charge for their services.
