    Answered . I assume that you are the judgment-debtor, that it is your employer that is honoring a garnishment, and that the judgment-creditor is showing a greater balance than your employer.

    This difference could be explained if your employer is not adding interest to the judgment amount and the judgment-creditor is adding interest. You need to consult with a local attorney that is familiar with the how judgments accrue interest in your state. It will then be a simple matter of math to determine the correct remaining balance.

    Answered . Are you asking about a garnishment? Is it just me or is this question confusing? You are a creditor? Are you collecting on a judgment or you owe? Please clarify this question. Are you asking what happens if your employer stops garnishing your wages and has a different total amount? So the garnishment will be finished early and there will be more owing or vice versa. I cannot make out what you are asking. Thanks!

    Answered . The sheriff's department will continue to collect money until the total amount due listed on the writ of execution, plus post-writ interest, plus sheriff's fees has been fully paid. If you think there's a discrepancy, you can ask the sheriff to provide you with a full accounting.
