Available options when you receive notice of a GARNISHMENT:

A Garnishment is a post judgment proceeding utilized to attach an asset such as a bank account, wages earned from your place of employment or rental income due to you from a tenant to apply to the judgment balance.  When a Garnishment is served upon the garnishee (i.e. a bank, an employer or a tenant), the garnishee is under a duty to file an answer with the court by the court date listed on the Garnishment and forward funds it holds on your behalf to the court to apply to the judgment balance.

If the garnishee is a bank, it is under a duty to forward funds it holds on your behalf (up to the amount of the judgment balance) to the court from the date the bank is served with the Garnishment through the court date listed on the Garnishment.

If the garnishee is an employer, it is under a duty to forward a percentage of your earnings (up to the amount of the judgment balance) from the date the employer is served with the Garnishment through the court date listed on the Garnishment.

If the garnishee is your tenant, he or she is under a duty to forward all rental payments that come due (up to the amount of the judgment balance) to the court from the date he or she is served with the Garnishment through the court date listed on the Garnishment.
