i live in Michigan and decided to go back to college....i have taken out student loans to pay for said college. i also owe child support (current and arrearages.) i got a letter in that mail today that states that "Any state tax refund or NON-GRANT payment to which i may be entitled may be offset and retained for payment of this debt." i thought that since its a loan to pay for college and the costs of college and not technically income that it cant be garnished.

I plan on calling a few Lawyers for free consults to inquire about this but i figured a yahoo question couldn't hurt either.

any insight will be greatly appreciated

thanks in advance
