How do I stop the garnishment? I have a upcoming trial in July. Was recently granted motion to set aside default. Provided the judge a copy of bank statement payment to original creditor. 2nd Third party plaintiff, has only proof of account transfer. How do I stop the garnishment before the July 22nd trial date?

  1. Best answer

    Call the attorney/party on the other side and ask them to withdraw the garnishment.. they have no right to a garnishment if the judgment was set aside. Tell them if you bring it up to the court you will as for damages.. they should withdraw it voluntarily.

    Plus you have a right to file an objection/motion to quash the garnishment

  2. It is a little difficult to follow the facts presented. However, the remedy you are looking forward is a Motion to Quash. In addition, you should consider speaking to an attorney immediately given the fact that the matter is set for trial.

    My comments are general in nature, are not legal advice as to your specific issue, and do not establish an attorney-client relationship. Disregard this solicitation if you have already engaged a lawyer in connection with the legal matter referred to in this solicitation. You may wish to consult your lawyer or another lawyer instead of me. The exact nature of your legal situation will depend on many facts not known to me at this time. You should understand that the advice and information in this solicitation is general and that your own situation may vary. This statement is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Missouri.


  3. Although the facts are not very clear, it appears that the creditor filed a Motion with the court to obtain an order to garnish your wages after obtaining a judgement against you.If the judgement is what was set aside, then you will need to file a Motion to Squash Order of Garnishment based on the fact that it was set aside.


  4. File objection to garnishment. See attached MC47

    This does not create an attorney-client relationship


  5. You have a violation of the FDCPA. Contact an attorney to help you through the process.
