You don't tell the debtor prior to a bank garnishment.Go to the court and apply to the court clerk for a "writ of garnishment"Then either pay a process server or have a licensed process server (usually the fastest way to do this) or your sheriff's civil division serve the writ on the financial institution.The bank will withhold the funds in the account as soon as the writ is served ("executed").After it is executed, the writ is then served on the debtor and the debtor has an opportunity to file for an exemption to the writ (if they are a company - there really aren't any exemptions that will apply).After the period for exemptions pass, the levying officer (process server or sheriff) will forward the funds from the bank to you, minus whatever fee is due for their service.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
