OBTAIN A WRIT OF GARNISHMENT

Justice Court in Maricopa County June 23, 2005 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED FORM (#)

MARICOPA COUNTY JUSTICE COURT

Garnishment is a process to enable you to collect on your judgment by accessing monies owed to the judgment debtor by others. There are two types of garnishment proceedings: 1. Garnishment of earnings (wages the debtor is earning at a job). 2. Garnishment of non-earnings (such as bank accounts, etc.). To initiate garnishment proceedings you need to know where the judgment debtor works, banks, etc. A written demand is required prior to garnishment of wages. After issuance, the writ must be served on the party or business holding the money (garnishee). The garnishee must then file an answer with the court. After an answer has been filed by the garnishee you must apply for an order to release (to you) any money being held. If the garnishee fails to answer, you may apply for a default judgment against the garnishee.

Please STOP...
If there is no judgment rendered in your favor.

If there is a satisfaction of judgment filed. If you are seeking to garnish wages and you have not given the judgment debtor a written demand for payment.

Please PROCEED...
If you have a judgment in your favor that is not satisfied.
