Garnishment is when there is a court order directing a percentage of money to be taken directly off of a paycheque to pay a debt owed to a creditor. It is a legal process that ensures that the employer deducts payments directly from a debtor’s paycheque and paid directly to the creditor. Garnishments are usually for debts such as fines, tax payments, child support payments, and student loans.
