They have already taken our income tax refund. My husband is filing an injured spouse form to try and get some of it back. I do not work due to taking care of my disabled daughter but I am wondering if they can garnish my husband's wages? This debt occurred before our marriage and we are in WV.
Please do not bash. I tried to make payment arrangements but the soonest i could make a payment was feb 5th and they said that was not good enough.

"Under the Higher Education Act, the Department and guaranty agencies may require employers who employ individuals who have defaulted on the repayment of a student loan to deduct 15% of the borrower's disposable pay per pay period toward repayment of the debt. Also, the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 permits the Department to garnish up to 15% of disposable pay. Garnishment may continue until the entire balance of the outstanding loan is paid. You should note that wage garnishment is used only for borrowers who refuse to voluntarily repay their defaulted loan and is not used with those borrowers who continue to make regular and timely monthly payments."
