Florida statutes provide unlimited protection against wage garnishment when the debtor is head of household. This protection is very broad and effective, but some states have even better wage protection.
Four states- North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Pennsylvania- do not allow wage garnishment to enforce a commercial debt regardless of whether the debtor is head of household. I do not know if courts have carved out any exceptions from what appears to be an unqualified prohibition against wage garnishment in these four states. I do know that many Florida debtors, including most unmarried debtors and some business owners, are vulnerable to continuing wage garnishment up to 25% of their take-home pay.
Many of my clients consider moving to Florida because they believe we have the best debtor protection laws. Those people should thoroughly investigate the exemptions of their home states before deciding to flee to Florida. You may be better off to stay where you are.
