Hello. Thank you for using JustAnswer.
Under very limited circumstances, a court order can be obtained under Utah law that can force a client to pay a third-party creditor.
It is very rare.
However, Utah law does provide for the garnishment of income of a business entity.
And, in most cases, such as in the McDonald's case, a bank garnishment is used.
How is that different? Do you mean bank account income?
It can occur in two ways.
First, the members of the LLC are served with a garnishment order mandating that any "draws" taken by the specified member be paid over to the garnishor.
Second, a bank levy/garnishment where funds are taken from the bank account.
The bank levy is far more common.
