See s.122E of the Civil Procedure Act 2005 (NSW) for more information.
Section 122E provides that if a Judgment Debtor satisfies a court that rent attached by a garnishee order is the only source of income of the Judgment Debtor, then the garnishee order must not reduce the net weekly amount of rent received to less than $447.70, being the standard workers compensation weekly benefit (the amount prescribed by Division 6 of Part 3 of the Workers Compensation Act 1987 (NSW), as adjusted from time to time under s.82).
