    I have read on this board that garnishments are illegal in the state of Pennsylvania, where I live. I have been served with a writ of garnisment due to a judgement, and I need to know what my next course of action should be. Can I sue them? The name of the co. is R & D Enterprises.

    You need to see a Pa. lawyer. Wage garnishment is illegal in your state but, it's likely they may be able to garnish bank accounts, etc.

    thanks, I will talk to a lawyer ASAP.

    does that mean wage garnishment is illegal even for child support?

    I do not know about child support but I lived in PA and was garnished on student loans. I would think that it is ok for the goverment to garnish but it is not ok for anyone else. Go figure...

    Why not pay your child support instead? Then you won't have to worry about being garnished. Afterall your kids need that money!
