Bill's Answer: Answered by Mark Cappel

Illinois garnishment rules are complex and favor, in my opinion, judgment debtors. For that reason, among others, you should not passively allow a judgment-creditor to garnish your wages.

Start with the resource Illinois Collection Laws page to learn more about the rights you and other Illinois residents share. Employees cannot be fired or suspended for wage garnishment.

See also the Illinois Legal Aid Wage Assignments page, which contains additional information about wage garnishment.

I hope this information helps you Find. Learn & Save.
