The creditor or person who is owed money must bring a lawsuit against the debtor in the proper court. If the plaintiff wins the case they will be granted a judgment, the judgment can then be enforced as a wage garnishment against the debtor, in accordance with the laws of the state where it is issued. Please be adivised there are four states that do not allow wage garnishment for the collection of creditor or personal debt owed, they are Texas, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and North Carolina.
