A garnishment for creditor debt cannot be transferred from one state to another. However the creditor can file suit in the resident state and perhaps obtain a writ of garnishment. Court ordered wage garnishment for child support and/or spousal maintenance; federal or state taxes due; court ordered restitution for damage done during a criminal act or a court order in regards to restitution for physical injury can be enforced across state jurisdictions.
