I won a small claims case in 2012. The debtor didn't voluntarily pay me so in 2016 I proceeded with a wage garnishment. The debtor filed an answer stating they couldn't pay because of child support so I demanded a hearing. They never showed or called in for the hearing therefore I won the case by default. The court then filed and sent the garnishee a copy of the document stating the garnishment start the pay period following the date of the letter (April 29th). It is now May 19th and I have not received any payment or any response from the garnishee as to why the garnishment hasn't started. I called the garnishee twice without any response. I am giving them the benefit of the doubt and assuming pay periods run every other week.
If you had paid a small sum to an attorney, you'd have your money already.
Good thing you saved a few bucks.
