Wage Garnishment

Garnishment is an American legal order for collecting a monetary judgment on behalf of a plaintiff from a defendant. The money can come directly from the defendant (the garnishee) or - at a court's discretion - from a third party. Jurisdiction law may allow for collection - without a judgment or other court order - in the case of collecting for taxes.
