Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Under NJ laws, you can file a motion for garnishment in the court that issued the judgment. The court can garnish only up to 25% of the wages that exceed $217 per week. So, before you file to garnish his wages, you need to make sure he has a job and then you would file for garnishment and serve his employer with the writ of garnishment.
