Under Oregon law, a Wage Garnishment can last up to a maximum of 90 days from when it is delivered. It will stop earlier than that if the debt is paid in full. Unfortunately, there is no restriction under Oregon law to stop a creditor from issuing a new Wage Garnishment once the first garnishment expires. In addition, the garnishment restriction rules generally do not apply to state or federal agencies. Wage Garnishment Frequently Asked Questions: How Long can an Oregon Wage Garnishment last?

Can I be subject to more than one Oregon Wage Garnishment?
Maybe. If one of the garnishments is from a state or federal taxing agency, or a Court order, then you may be subject to more than one garnishment. However, generally only one Oregon Wage Garnishment from a non-governnmental creditor can be active at the same time. If two Oregon wage garnishments are delivered to your employer, then the first takes precedence and gets paid until either (a) the debt is paid in full or (b) the garnishment expires. If during a pay period the first garnishment is paid in full and there still remains garnishable wages to pay the second garnishment, then the second garnishment will receive funds.
