A Creditor Cannot Garnish the Earnings Of..

In the State of Florida, a Creditor cannot Garnish the Earnings of a Head Of Family, who is a natural person who provides more than one-half of the support of a child or other dependent, unless such Head of Family (otherwise known as the head of household), agrees in writing to such Garnishment. Section 222.11 of the Florida Statutes also prohibits the Garnishment of the bank account of a Head Of Family, up until six months after such Earnings were first received.   Florida Law also provides that commingling of the Earnings of the Head Of Family into such bank account with other monies, does not necessarily defeat the ability of the Head Of Family to claim such Earnings or monies as Exempt.
