COLUMBIA COUNTY, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- News 12 learned how much money will be taken out of Bruce Alford's paycheck as he starts to pay back some of his debts.

Just last month, we reported the Alford’s are broke and that lawyers are using our I-TEAM stories in bankruptcy court, trying to prove the Alfords committed fraud.

An order for $875 has to be taken out of Bruce Alford's paycheck every month and it says it's to start immediately.

There's already an objection, noting that Alford pays $1500 a month in alimony. It also suggests he shouldn't have to pay what he owes on pool equipment since he's no longer building pools. It also states Bruce Alford's new salary is $50,000 a year and that he gets $600 a month in VA benefits. The concern here is if Alford can afford that.

It's important to note that this would be money paid bank for him filing bankruptcy. This doesn't even begin to address paying back pool victims and any criminal or civil cases.

Bruce Alford also filed an employment change about a month ago, saying he works at a trucking company based out of Omaha, Nebraska.
