Hello and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you.

Q: they are on felony probration in georgia can this get them in any additional trouble ?
A: No, civil issues won't get the person into trouble. Unfortunately, it is not a crime to refuse to return property.

Q: I've tried other avenues to recover without any luck and can there wages be garnished?
A: Yes, if you win a judgment in small claims court, then you can garnish wages, bank accounts, etc.
