Q.

What is a garnishment, and how does it work in Florida?

A.

A garnishment is a legal procedure where a creditor reaches to the assets of a debtor, which are currently in the hands of another. An example would be a bank garnishment.

In Florida, there are two types of garnishment: a pre-judgment garnishment and a post-judgment garnishment. Both involve and require a pending civil case. Now to learn more about the differences between the two and the procedures of those two, look to Chapter 77 of the Florida Statutes.
