How do you get garnished wages back from employer after you file bankruptcy?

It's not going to happen. You owed money and that creditor went to court to get your employer to deduct what you owed them from your paycheck and send it to them. Your employer does not owe you a dime. They followed a court order. They had no choice. You went bankrupt AFTER the garnishment, so anything paid BEFORE the bankruptcy is water under the bridge. You cannot "get money back" on something that was paid before the bankruptcy. Since you went bankrupt, the garnishment should stop but you will not get any money "back".

The reason for the wage garnishment must be known before it can be determined if the employer has/is making a erroneous deduction from an employee's wages.

How is the money divided when you have more than one garnishment?

Creditor garnishments must run consecutively they cannot be concurrent. That being the case, the first creditor that executes the garnishment order is paid until the debt is settled. Then the second garnishment (if any will begin). Please note, child support and sometimes spousal maintenance is NOT considered a "true garnishment of wages". Likewise garnishment for federal and/or state taxes are not applicable as such. For example, a child support garnishment can be active at the same time as a creditor judgment garnishment. The percentage of garnishment amounts is determined by the laws of the state in which the garnishee resides.
