Government secured guarantee student loan closed in 2011 is now being garnished from my check.
I was to believe that this was a forgiven debt due to a bill passed and now it's being garnished can I fight this?

Did you complete the loan forgiveness paperwork?   Are you in the public service or a teacher at a title 1 school?  If the answer is no, then you are in severe default, no forgiveness was done and that is why you are being garnished.  You need to go online to the National Student Loan Data System (Google it) and plug in your information.  It will tell you the status of your loans. You'll need to contact your loan servicer or collection company and ask them to put you into a repayment plan to rehabilitate your loan so you can stop the garnishment, or ask for a hearing if you can prove financial hardship you may be able to get the garnishment lifted.
