Thank you for using Just Answer. I want to provide you the best service I can. Please feel free to ask any follow up questions you have.
I am an attorney with 30 years of experience; I hope to provide you information that will help you in resolving your question.
You can file a "Motion for an Accounting of the Garnishment Payments and Refund of Over-payment" with the Court that ordered the garnishment. In the order you would need to describe in simple declarative sentences why you believe excess garnishment was made, that a refund appears to be due, but that you have not received a proper accounting of the garnished wages that were taken by the creditor nor a refund of the over-payment.
This can be done in a page or two. You file the Motion with the Court and send a copy to the creditor.
You can use one of the court documents that were previously filed as a guide to build your Motion.
The key is to write in simple sentences and break each thought into a numbered paragraph. For example:
1) On ___ date this Court issued an Order to garnish wages until $____ in debt was paid to creditor.
2) Garnishment commenced on ___ date and ended on ____date.
3) Movant never received an accounting from creditor on the amounts garnished and believes that excess garnishments were taken,
4) Movant request this Court to order Creditor to provide a proper accounting of money received and to order a refund where it is due.
These is no guarantee that the Court will grant your motion. But Motions are the mechanism to ask the Court for what you want.
