Lowering garnishment deductions

Question: One of our employees is having his wages garnished. He says the deductions are too high and are causing him to have financial difficulty. He wants to repay the outstanding amount over a longer period of time with lower wage deductions and has asked the payroll department to reduce the amount we deduct and send to the court each month. Can we do this on our own or do we need the court’s permission?
