Wage Garnishment

Wage garnishment is when money is taken out of your paycheck to pay a creditor that you owe money to.

Typically, a creditor will ask a court to order a wage garnishment after the creditor has sued you in a debt collection lawsuit and has gotten a judgment against you. The court will then send a notice to your employer to withhold money from your paycheck to pay off the judgment over time.
