    Answered . Writs and garnishments do expire based on time, but they can be refiled with whatever bank or employer you have until such time as either (a) the overall judgment expires (10 years, but can be renewed), or (b) the judgment is paid. Bottom line - if the creditor is determined to collect, there isn't anything you can do about it.
