How much of my paycheck will wage garnishment take for my student loan?

The amount of student loan wage garnishment taken from your paycheck each month will depend on factors discussed during a court proceeding. Those factors include your income, fixed expenses and the amount of your loan. The court will hope to determine a payment that is large enough to repay your debt quickly without causing you undue hardship in meeting your day-to-day expenses. To ensure this amount is fair, present the court with all documents confirming your current expenses. Medical bills, rent or mortgage payments, insurance costs and cost of living expenses will all be considered.
