Quick Stoppage of Your Wage Garnishment and Preventing Other Serious Consequences

The State of California has the power to garnish up to 50 percent of your wages as payment of your child support arrearages. Other serious consequences you may face include:

  • Levies on your bank accounts
  • Interception/withholding of tax returns for garnishment
  • Suspension of your driver's or business license
  • The inability to renew your passport or professional license
