Once a garnishment of wages has been served, the employer of the debtor or the garnishee must, within 30 days, reply to the writ, indicating the state of employment of the debtor—whether he or she is employed, and other details like rate of pay and whether he or she has had any prior wage garnishments or not. The employer must also verify the amount of garnishable wages per pay period and in turn withhold the amount from the debtor. The garnishee is also responsible for reporting and distributing the total amount of withheld wages for the month to the creditor. If however, another judgment or garnishment is served, remittance to the subsequent creditor cannot be made until the first garnishment has been paid in full.
