How do I determine disposable income for an independent contractor whose wages I am supposed to garnish? Posted on May 20, 2011

I have been served a garnishment summons for a independent contractor. I am unsure of how to determine what the "disposable income" would be as she receives a 1099 at the end of the year so no with holding on the wages when the check is written. She is a single parent three children, so I can't imagine her "disposable income" could be much. I want to do whatever is required by law, of course, but don't know what the law requires/allows for an amount.
