What is the name of your state? Kentucky
I have had this credit card for a few years now and had to stop paying on it because of a job loss and other financial reasons. I tried using Ameri-Debt to pay this off and couldn't afford those payments either. I now have a less paying job that I can barely get by on what I make there. I have two small children, in which one is going to be starting school in a couple of days in kindergarten. I haven't made a payment on this card for over a year. Now they are trying to garnish my pay check. They are taking 75% of my check. Can they take that much legally? I'm barely going to be left enough to pay my babysitter for my other child. I will only have $1.95 left after the babysitter and the garnishment. What can I do. I was told that if I quit my job I could spend 11 months and 29 days in jail. Is this right? My boss says he cannot fire me because of some legal matter in this. Though he would normally fire me because he doesn't want to have to go through all the red tape it involves. What can I do? I have these two small kids to raise. My husband doesn't make enough to help pay this bill either. We use his check to pay our trailer payment, car payment, utilities (phone, electricity, water, home insurance, car insurance, satellite bill, computer payments, etc.). It only goes so far. I used my check to buy gas to get us back and forth to work and groceries and my diabetes medicines ( glyberide, Lantus). I have to take two pills in the morning and a shot before I go to bed. I really need help.
