If your Notice of Garnishment expires

A Notice of Garnishment can last 6 years.

If that time is almost over and you haven't been paid what is owed, you can renew your Notice of Garnishment. Each renewal lasts another 6 years.

To renew the garnishment, complete and file with the court:

If the debt is paid

If the debt is paid before the Notice of Garnishment expires, you must immediately serve a Notice of Termination of Garnishment to the garnishees and the court clerk. This lets them know they should stop making payments to you.

If you don't serve the Notice of Termination of Garnishment, and the garnishee keeps taking money from the debtor, the debtor can take you to court to get that money back.

You can serve your documents:

  • in person
  • by mail or fax
  • by courier
