Garnishment Funds

Garnishment funds will be disbursed to the Plaintiff’s attorney, or to the Plaintiff if they are not represented by an attorney. Garnishment funds must be held for 20 days. After 20 days and provided that the proper paperwork has been filed, the Clerk will automatically disburse this money and mail it to the last known address of the Plaintiff’s attorney/Plaintiff. If you have a garnishment case pending with this Court it is extremely important to notify the Court in writing of any change of address.
