Wage Garnishment

A wage garnishment is a legal method a creditor uses to collect the money you owe them.  Generally this follows a lawsuit to collect the debt.  Once the court has determined that the debt is owed, the creditor has a legal remedy to collect the debt by ordering your employer to withhold money from your paycheck.  In Ohio, wage garnishments take 25% of your paycheck after taxes.
