How do I get my money through a garnishment?

A “garnishment” is a court order that allows a creditor who is owed money to take the property of the debtor (the person who owes the money). Typically this means garnishing the debtor’s wages. See Iowa Code chapter 642 for more information on garnishments. If you do not understand this information or are unsure about how to collect your judgment, talk to an attorney.
