If a creditor is garnishing your wages for a judgment they have against you, then federal law says that the creditor can take no more than 25% of your disposable income, or the amount you earn that is greater than 30 times the federal minimum wage, whichever is less.
For example, if you earn $600/week, 25% of your income is $150. Assuming $7.25 federal minimum wage, this is $7.25*30 = $217.5. Since $600 - $217.5 = $382.5, and $150 is less than $382.5, the creditor can only garnish $150.
