Garnish Of Wages

A writ of Garnishment continuing lien on earnings was recently issued against me. First I am apealing the judgement that was issued by this same person. None the less I currently have a child support
wage witholding of around 25% of my disposible earnings.

I know that a non support garnish will take 25% of my disposible earnings. But when figuring out the amount to garnish from me do they take into consideration that I am already being hit for 25%, or do they just take 25% for the new garnish in addition to the 25% for child support?

Basically this leaves me with hardly anything. Especially when in addition to the child support I have to pay a huge daycare bill, and all of the bills in the divorce, not to mention huge legal fees.

What are my rights?
