Many debtors are unwilling to pay. Wage garnishment simplifies the collection process. You don’t have to fight with your debtor or hunt them down. Instead, you go right to the source — his or her employer.
A wage garnishment, or earnings withholding order, is a court order sent to your debtor’s employer, requiring that a portion of the debtor’s wages goes to you. Every time your debtor gets paid, you get paid.
How To Garnish Your Debtor’s Wages
A court has decided: You are owed money. Now what? Many people struggle with enforcing their judgments and collecting the money they are owed.
If you have a judgment stating that you are owed money and your debtor refuses to pay, there are options. Through a wage garnishment, or earnings withholding order, you cut the debtor out of the process and get paid directly from the debtor’s employer.
Attorney Joshua P. Friedman makes the process simple:
- First: We obtain an earnings withholding order.
- Second: We notify your debtor and his or her employer.
- Third: We collect your money.
California law typically limits the amount of wages that can be garnished per paycheck at 25 percent. Depending on the amount you are owed, wage garnishment may be only one of a variety of collection methods we use to get you paid.
