I received via Certified Mail (4/26/13) an Application For Writ of Garnishment & Writ of Garnishment, both stamped by local county court 3/8/13. These are the only papers I've ever received, I haven't moved, haven't changed jobs nor phone #. The garnishment is for a monetary judgement from divorce 4 yrs ago - $1500 for atty's fees to be awarded to other party - NOT SPOUSAL MAINTENANCE. There is no record of service or summons, nothing stating I was supposed to go to court.
The payroll office states they were going to garnish this week, thankfully talked them out of it. I didnt have any time to prepare a response, and I believe I should have an opportunity to respond.
Debt was "sold" by Creditor to a Judgement Recovery Service.
Is this illegal and how do I take this person to court?
