A garnishment is the legal process by which a creditor can take a portion of a debtor’s paycheck prior to it ever reaching their hands. Garnishments are traditionally awarded to creditors who have an unpaid judgment in their favor. They are highly disputed by the debtor in some cases since their personal financial information and predicament is often shared with an employer which can then negatively impact their job stability. Garnishments can occur against bank accounts, salary or wages, other income, and property.
