Dear alb-ga

Thank you for allowing me an opportunity to answer your interesting
question. The laws and civil procedure pertaining to garnishment in
Kentucky are somewhat complicated. I would be doing you a great
disservice to try and summarize the legal requirement to you
considering that this is an issue of a legal nature. Because of that,
before proceeding I recommend you familiarize yourself with these
issues as much as possible, in the verbatim language they were
intended to be read:

Everything you need to know about initiating a garnishment preceeding
by yourself (pro se) or with legal assistance in the Commonwealth of
Kentucky is explained in detail in this document courtesy of the
KENTUCKY COURTS OF JUSTICE:

SMALL CLAIMS DIVISION OF DISTRICT COURT
GENERAL INFORMATION AND POST JUDGEMENT COLLECTIONS

The statutes from which these provisions are set forth are:
