Garnishment
A garnishment is a court - ordered method of collecting money directly from a person's wages or bank account. The process is one by which a judgment creditor seizes money owed to the judgment debtor, from a third party known as a "garnishee."

When filing a garnishment you must ensure you use the correct address for the employer or bank.
