How do you get a default Judgment against the garnishee?

If the garnishee does not answer within 45 days of service by the Sheriff, an additional 15 days is given to open default. If the answer is filed within the 15-day period, the garnishee must pay the amount of court cost paid at the time of the initial filing. If the garnishee does not file an answer within the 60-day period, the plaintiff may request for a default judgment against the garnishee. The judge will issue a judgment against the garnishee for the amount claimed on the affidavit of garnishment.
