How many garnishments can be on a person at one time?

Iowa law provides that only one execution can be in existence at a time. See Iowa Code section 626.3. If there is already a garnishment on you or the other party, you should talk to an attorney for options. Iowa Code section 642.21 describes what amounts may be garnished from a person’s earnings.
