How To Collect From the Debtor's Wages
If the debtor is employed, you can get an Earnings Withholding Order to garnish the debtor's wages until you are paid. You have the right to collect up to 25 percent of the amount over the federal minimum wage that the debtor earns (as long as it is not exempt under other rules). This only works if the other person is employed by someone else. A wage garnishment does not work against someone who is self-employed.
Steps to collect from the Debtor’s Wages:
Order a social security number lookup to properly complete for forms WG-035 & EJ-001.
Ask the court to issue a Writ of Execution (Form EJ-130).
Prepare an Application for Earnings Withholding Order (Wage Garnishment) (Form WG-001).
Hire a process server or the sheriff/marshal to serve the employer with the necessary papers for the wage garnishment.The process server or sheriff/marshal will usually fill out the Earnings Withholding Order (Form WG-002) using the information from the Writ of Execution. But you may have to fill it out yourself. This form has instructions on the back for the employer explaining how much money to garnish (take) from the debtor's wages.
