Wage Garnishment v Bank Garnishment

Allison Harrison

Business Debt Collection Law Firm Columbus, OH

Garnishments are used after judgment to collect on the judgment. There are two main types: Wage and Other than Wage (often called Bank) garnishment. Wage garnishments are served on the debtor’s employer and a percentage of the wage is withheld and sent to the Court (and ultimately the creditor). Other Than Wage garnishments are typically applied to bank accounts where the bank is served and the available portion is withheld and sent to the Court (and ultimately the creditor). Attorney Harrison explains more in the video below.
