Wage garnishment in Virginia

Question Details: I have received a notice of wage garnishment from the lawyer that represents the surgical center where I had a surgical procedure done last year. I had previously set up a payment plan (not in writing) and made an intial payment but haven't sent one since. I make just enough money to cover my half of the rent which is $515/mo. Can they take all of the money I earn which isn't even enough to cover other amenties such as food, gas, etc.? Should I contact the lawyers office again to keep from going to court? What options do I have with wage garnishment?
