A. For the purposes of this section, "disposable earnings" means that
remaining portion of a debtor's wages, salary or compensation for his personal services,
including bonuses and commissions, or otherwise, and includes payments pursuant to a
pension or retirement program or deferred compensation plan, after deducting from such
earnings those amounts required by law to be withheld.
B. Except as provided in subsection C, the maximum part of the disposable earnings of a
debtor for any workweek which is subject to process may not exceed twenty-five per cent of
disposable earnings for that week or the amount by which disposable earnings for that week
exceed thirty times the minimum hourly wage prescribed by federal law in effect at the
time the earnings are payable, whichever is less.
C. The exemptions provided in subsection B do not apply in the case of any order for
the support of any person. In such case, one-half of the disposable earnings of a debtor
for any pay period is exempt from process.
D. The exemptions provided in this section do not apply in the case of any order of any
court of bankruptcy under chapter XIII of the federal bankruptcy act or any debt due for
any state or federal tax.
