There is no trial pertaining to garnishment. The trial (lawsuit hearing) is where the plaintiff can be awarded a judgment for debt owed. The judgment creditor/plaintiff may then execute the judgment as a wage garnishment in accordance with the laws of the state in which the debtor resides. The debtor should appear at the lawsuit hearing to defend his or her case. As a nonappearance will result in the plaintiff winning the case and a default judgment being entered against the defendant. ANSWER In the soverign, an operative word in statutory law and the United States of America's latest constitution, and applicable to the State of Georgia, State of Georgia, "wage" garnishment requires notice and opportunity for response and a hearing. That sure looks like a 'trial' is required to me. I flatly disagree with Answer I, paragraph I. NO major problems with Paragraphs II and III. However, there are 50 states not to mention the territories. Rules, laws and legislation always diffier. It's all one big experiement, to paraphrase a very wise US Supreme Court Justice.
