What is a garnishment?

A garnishment is a way of collecting payment from a defendant. It orders a third party, which owes money to the defendant, to pay money directly to a plaintiff.

Garnishments may cause significant financial hardship for those who have a number of debts. For this reason, a bankruptcy court relieve individuals who file for bankruptcy of their garnishments.
