Wage Garnishment in Arizona

In order to garnish your wages, a creditor must obtain a judgment and then request that the court issue a writ of garnishment. Once your employer has been notified, the garnishment will begin. You may not know your wages are going to be garnished until your employer notifies you that they received an order for garnishment or you look at your bank account and find most of your money missing.

According to Arizona law, a creditor may:

  • Secure a judgment and a writ of garnishment
  • Garnish up to 25% of each paycheck
  • Continue garnishment until the debt is paid in full
  • Garnish the money in your bank account

Filing for bankruptcy is the fastest way to end garnishment of your wages or bank account. As soon as your bankruptcy petition is filed, the court will issue an order to stop all collection efforts against you. This covers everything from harassing telephone calls from creditors to wage garnishment and garnishment of your bank account.
