Legal Answers
Q. How many garnishments can an employer withhold from an employee in the state of MO
A: Generally speaking, one at a time. There is no limit on how many an employer may process over time, but the garnishment lien attaches to all of the wages. There are limits on what percentage can be withheld from any one check that depend on the nature of the garnishment (is it child support?) and the family status of the employee.
