I received a Writ of Garnishment from a creditor that has a civil judgement against me. In the envelope I received a notice of Writ of Garnishment from their attorney - which was stamped by the courts. I also received a exemption claim form that has "no" stamps from the courts on it? Do I have to respond to the exemption claim form if it doesn't have a stamp from the courts on it?
You don't have to respond to the exemption form but it exists for your benefit. It is sent directly from the collection attorney and not from the court. If you qualify for any exemptions then follow the instructions on the form and fill it out and send it back to the attorney and I think file with the court also and you have something like 28 days to do this.
I agree with previous answer but the timeline is short 10 days and it needs to be filed with the court and the employer in case there is a question.
Only If and until you and I sign an Agreement for Legal Services, I am not your attorney. These answers are provided for informational and/or novelty purposes
