Wage Garnishment Lawyer in West Palm Beach, FL
A wage garnishment is when the sheriff presents your employer with garnishment papers, ordering your employer to take out a certain amount each time you are paid until the debt is paid off. Garnishment law requires your employer to withhold the correct amount from your paycheck or be legally liable for it.
But before your creditors can take anything, they must give notice of the garnishment, and this must include the following:
- A Clear Statement That Garnishment Has Occurred
- A Description of the Primary “Exemptions” from Garnishment – That Is, What the Creditor Can’t Take
- A Description of the Procedures That You Can Follow to Contest the Garnishment; You Will Be Given the Chance to Go to Court and Explain Why Garnishment Should Not Be Allowed
- Finally, the creditor can take the Judgment and Garnishment Order to the Local Sheriff and ask that the Judgment be “Levied” or “Applied.”
