If its tax related, the IRS issues " Levies " to your employer(s) and bank(s). The employer is instructed to withhold and levy a portion of your paycheck and render to the IRS. The bank would freeze your account and render the funds to the IRS within 21 days. You should AVOID the wage garnis…hment as soon as you receive the "Notice of Levy" from the IRS.

Collecting a judgment in another state is possible under the Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act, which is available in 46 states. The "full faith and credit" clause of the U. S. Constitution ensures that a state must recognize the validity of a judgment rendered in another state and ensure…s that this right is available. Once the judgment is registered in this fashion, normal collection procedures such as wage garnishments, bank account levies and liens on real property will apply. For wage garnishment is not judgement, the underlying judgement needs to be registered in the State of Washington. . The clerks of the superior courts and district courts may issue writs of garnishment returnable to their respective courts for the benefit of a judgement creditor who has a judgement wholly or partially unsatisfied in the court from which the garnishment is sought. The judgement creditor as the plaintiff shall apply for a writ of garnishment by affidavit, Stating the following facts: (1) The plaintiff has a judgement wholly or partially unsatisfied in the court from which the writ is sought; (2) the amount alleged to be due under that judgement; (3) the plaintiff has reason to believe, and does believe that the garnishee, Stating the garnishee's name and residence or place of business, is indebted to the defendant in amount exceeding those exempted from garnishment by any Statute or federal law; and (4) whether or not the garnishee is the employer of the judgement debtor. The judgement creditor shall pay to the clerk of the superior court the fee provided by the law ($20 for each garnishee named in an affidavit for garnishment), or to the clerk of the district court the fee of two dollars. A writ of garnishment directed to a bank, savings and loan association, or credit union that maintains branch offices shall identify either a particular branch of the financial institution or the financial institution as the garnishee defendant. The head office of the financial institution shall be considered a separate branch. The Statement may be incorporated in the writ or served separately. Service shall be by certified mail, return receipt requested, directed to or by personal service, in the same manner as a summons in a civil action is served, on the manager, cashier, or assistant cashier of the financial institution, except that, if the financial institution, and not a branch, is named as garnishee defendant, service shall be either on the head office or on the place designated by the financial institution for receipt of service of process. There shall be served with the writ, as part of the service, a Statement in writing signed by the plaintiff or plaintiff's attorney, Stating (a) the defendant's place of residence and business, occupation, trade, or profession, or (b) the defendant's federal tax identification number, or (c) the defendant's account number, if such information is not incorporated in the writ. A writ naming the financial institution as the garnishee defendant shall be effective only to attach deposits of the defendant in the financial institution and compensation payable for personal services due to the defendant from the financial institution. A writ naming a branch as garnishee defendant shall be effective only to attach the deposits, accounts, credits, or other personal property of the defendant (excluding compensation payable for personal services) in the possession or control of the particular branch to which the writ is directed and on which service is made. The writ of garnishment shall set forth in the first paragraph the amount that the garnishee is required to hold, which shall include the amount of the judgment remaining unsatisfied plus interest to the date of garnishment plus taxable costs and attorney's fees and the estimated costs of garnishment. Costs recoverable in garnishment proceedings include filing fee, service and affidavit fees, postage and costs of certified mail, answer fee or fees, and a garnishment attorney fee in the amount of the greater of fifty dollars or ten percent of the amount of the judgment remaining unsatisfied. The garnishment attorney fee shall not exceed two hundred fifty dollars. Service of the writ of garnishment on the garnishee is invalid unless the writ is served together with four answer forms, three stamped envelopes addressed respectively to the clerk of the court issuing the writ, the attorney for the plaintiff, and the defendant, and cash or a check made payable to the garnishee in the amount of ten dollars. If a writ of garnishment is served by mail, the person making the mailing shall file an affidavit showing the time, place, and manner of mailing and that the writ was accompanied by answer forms, addressed envelopes, and cash or a check and shall attach the return receipt to the affidavit. From and after the service of a writ, it shall not be lawful for the garnishee to pay any debt owing to the defendant at the time of such service, or to deliver, sell or transfer, or recognize any sale or transfer of, any personal property or effects belonging to the defendant in the garnishee's possession or under his control at the time of such service. This restriction does not apply to any portion of a debt that is exempt from garnishment or any funds or property in excess of the amount stated in the writ if the garnishee continues to hold an amount equal to the amount stated in the writ. When a writ is issued, on or before the date of service of the writ on the garnishee, the judgment creditor shall mail or cause to be mailed to the judgment debtor, by certified mail, addressed to the last known post office address of the judgment debtor a copy of the writ and a copy of the judgment or, if it is a district court judgment, a copy of the judgment creditor's affidavit, and the notice and claim form. Alternatively, the judgment creditor may serve the Stated documents on the judgment debtor personally. Proof of service shall be filed with the clerk of court. J ( Full Answer )
If you have a court ordered tax refund garnishment from Michigan and you now reside in New York For 4 years can they take the refund Also can the garnish the wages of the spouse if they file jointly?
Yes. they can, but you should file jointly and so they don't garnish the spouses part, file injured spouse, and I do not know why it is called that but I know my husband owes back support and that is how we have to file so I will get my part. Ans The one above, who erased my previous answe…r but goes on to say she doesn't really know what she is signing....well hope she qualifies or it could be criminal... And no matter what, to avoid the issue, filing seperately is better. And no matter what...getting your spouse to pay their obligations, (like there taxes or supporting their kids) is better. And if your in a community property state, or the debt doesn't come from those very specific things, etc., etc., injured spouse won't work. Accepting it, and when the problem comes up...you'll have serious ones (probably after he abandons you like he apparently may have done to his last), or just fails to pay his taxes now too...maybe lies on them (the current ones YOU ARE responsible for). You are an injured spouse if your share of the overpayment shown on your joint return was, or is expected to be, applied against your spouse's past-due federal debts, state taxes, or child or spousal support payments. If you are an injured spouse, you may be entitled to receive a refund of your share of the overpayment. For more information, get Form 8379, Injured Spouse Claim and Allocation. ( Full Answer )
Filing bankruptcy can stop a garnishment immediately. If all funds that have been garnished have been properly exempted, the garnished funds can even be returned to the debtor.. When a bankruptcy is filed, a special provision of the bankruptcy code kicks in and stops all creditor action to collec…t a debt. The special provision of the bankruptcy code is Section 362 and is called "the Automatic Stay". The Automatic Stay is a court order to all creditors to stop collecting debts immediately.. When a paycheck or bank account is garnished, money is taken from the paycheck or other account and held until a certain time when the money is supposed to be delivered to court and turned over to the creditor. The date that the creditor is supposed to pick up the garnished funds in court is often called "the return date". If a bankruptcy is filed before the return date set for the garnishment, the garnishment is immediately stopped and the creditor cannot continue to collect the debt through the garnishment method.. However, understand that the debt the garnishment is paying isn't extinguished or reduced...it will be resolved in the BK.. The above probably won't apply to child support or such...which rightfully gets no breaks. ( Full Answer )
The cosigner can ask but I seriously doubt they will be successful. The cosigner knew the risks when they signed the loan application. The cosigner knew, or should have known, the borower's history of successful loan payoffs were questionable at best. The cosigner assumed the responsibility when the…y signed on. ( Full Answer )
Basically, bankruptcy uses all your assets to pay all your debts. Under the protection of the BK, you may be able to not have the garnishment taken, but that is only because everything will be used to pay and clear all your debts. You MUST include all of your debts and all of your assets in th…e filing. You do not and cannot pick and chose what is involved. All are given priorities, some of each may be exempt from seizure or discharge. You really didn't think you could just go BK on something, have the debt discharged and simply keep everything else you want, did you? ( Full Answer )
I believe that if a credit card company takes you to court and you or your representative (attorney) do not appear, a summary judgment can be issued against you and the court can order your wages garnished.
No. No lender/collector can garnish your wages without a court order. You would have been summoned to appear in court with your defense prior to a court order being issued for a garnishment. In other words, you would know if a legitimate collector was suing you for real. Payday loans are illegal in …Maryland. No payday lender would succeed in suing you in Maryland for anything. Payday lenders routinely break the law by making false threats. They will threaten garnishment, arrest, suspension of your drivers license, etc. They can do none of those things to you. It is simply a tactic to scare you into paying them. Unfortunately, many scammers have popped up who are pretending to be "agents" or "officers" collecting on payday loans. They attempt to scare you into paying them immediately, then they can successfully steal your money right from your account. Never give your personal information or account information to anyone you do not know is legitimate. You can report payday lenders/collectors to the Maryland Commissioner of Financial Regulation for investigation. ( Full Answer )

How can you find out where someone works so you can use your superior court order and garnish their wages?

Canada has recipical agreements with certain states in the USA concerning Child Maintainence Enforcement. The world is shrinking for deadbeat dads. I do not think that Canada would take issue with enforcing USA orders in return.
That cannot be answered unless you consult the local legal code. There is a grace period before any action can be taken. That allows an appeal to be filed if it is available. The legal papers can be flied in a day or so after there the delay required has been satisfied.

Because creditors may garnish your taxes , your bank account, other financial accounts, and may attach other real property with a court order.
It should, but only for as long as the bankruptcy is active, and only so long as the debt is listed after the bankruptcy is discharged. More accurately, the garnishment must stop when the plantiff in the judgment has received notice that there is a bankruptcy.
A payday loan company cannot touch you in Maryland. Payday lending/collecting is illegal in Maryland. No one can ever garnish your pay without first getting a court order, and of course you would be summoned by the court to appear in your defense. So, you would know if someone was really garnishing …your paycheck. They are known for making false and illegal statements when trying to collect. File a complaint with the Maryland Commissioner of Financial Regulation and the FTC. As a sidenote, some of them have been known to submit fraudulent paperwork to employers requesting a wage garnishment. You may do well to let your employer know that you're being harassed by these folks, and that anything they may send or say over the phone should be completely disregarded. ( Full Answer )

Is a creditor required to notify you of a court date to have your wages garnished if so what can you do if you weren't notified and your wages were garnished?
I am presuming you are in the UK. If so, the answer is possibly that you did not let your creditor know you had moved and they issued to the county court at your last known address. This is perfectly legal, as is the responsibility of the debtor (you in this case) to let your creditors know your up …to date contact information and/or to have your mail forwarded. I would check what address you were notified at with the county court. Only if you were out of the country and can prove it at the time of the issue notification can you have the judgment set aside.

Generally, a certified letter is sent to the last known address. If you have moved they do not forward it or look any further. The court considers this a good faith effort and do not require any further effort. The court would have required proof of the effort before garnishment would have been appr…oved. ( Full Answer )
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 anyt…hing 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". ( Full Answer )
