Legal Question in Credit and Debt Law in Nebraska

defaulted student loan

If a student loan is in default & wages are about to be garnished, can the creditor still garnish wages if they begin to receive monthly payments that are below the billed amount? In other words, if payment arrangements are unsatisfactory to the creditor, can they still garnish wages while receiving a payment no matter how small?
