Statutes of Limitations to Garnish Wages
3 attorney answers
They can serve a writ of garnishment on your employer within a very short time after the judgment. Unless you did not receive a normal paycheck immediately after the judgment, the creditor generally starts garnishing your wages right after the judgment. If you have still not been garnished after almost five years your probably won't have to worry. They might renew the judgment and if they remember to renew, then they will most likely attempt to garnish wages once more.

In Arizona, the judgment is valid for 5 years. The judgment can, however, be renewed by filing a judgment renewal affidavit. If a judgment renewal affidavit is filed, the judgment will be valid for another 5 years.

There isn't one. Garnishments can be filed up until the judgment expires.
