Garnishment

Garnishment procedures are governed by Arizona law and are extremely complicated.  All parties involved must follow these procedures correctly. The Court may issue an order for monetary penalties against any party who does not proceed properly, including the judgment creditor. Garnishment is a legal process by which one party may collect money from another party, after a money judgment has been entered. Find out more about the garnishment process and the forms needed at the Arizona Supreme Court Online under Garnishment.
