Garnishment is a court-sanctioned procedure that sets aside a portion of an employee’s wages to
pay a financial obligation.

It’s a legal process that allows a creditor to remove funds from your bank account to satisfy a debt that you have not paid. If you owe money to a person or company, they can obtain a court order directing your bank to take money out of your account to pay off your debt.
