Simple version: The creditor sues the debtor and is awarded a judgment. The creditor executes the judgment as a wage garnishment. The garnishment papers are served on the garnishee's employer. The employer withholds the amount stated in the garnishment order from the named employee's wages until the debt is satisfied or the garnishment order is no longer valid.
