Garnishment

Garnishment Of Personal Earnings

Once you obtain a judgment against a debtor, and if efforts to collect still go unpaid, you may garnish the judgment debtor's personal earnings. Garnishment of personal earnings is permitted under Ohio Revised Code R.C. Chapter 2716.

Post-Judgment Garnishment Of Property Other Than Personal Earnings

One of the most frequent post-judgment remedies used by judgment creditors is garnishment of property other than personal earnings. The most common example of this method of collection is a bank attachment pursuant to which a judgment creditor seeks to attach funds of the judgment debtor on deposit with a financial institution.

Pursuant to R.C. §§ 2716.06(B) and 2715.01(E), an attachment of property other than personal earnings after judgment can be obtained only pursuant to a garnishment under R.C. Chapter 2716.
