Garnishment is the method by which a party that has won a lawsuit may collect money from an uncooperative debtor. A lawsuit's victorious party–frequently referred to as a "judgment creditor"–may use garnishment in Kansas and Missouri to get what is owed from the lawsuit's loser, known as the "judgment debtor."
The judgment creditor may seek a garnishment in Kansas and Missouri to obtain the judgment debtor's money from third parties, like employers (to garnish wages) or banks (to garnish bank account funds). In fact, a garnishment in Kansas and Missouri courts can be obtained against any third party that is indebted to the judgment debtor, or who possesses the judgment debtor's property. And upon a garnishment order, that third party is court-ordered to turn over the debtor's money and property.
