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 http://www.kycourts.net/Resources/Small_Claims.pdf The statutes from which these provisions are set forth are: Kentucky Revised Statute § 425.501-526 501 Proceedings for obtaining order of garnishment. http://www.lrc.state.ky.us/KRS/425-00/501.PDF 506 Attachment or garnishment of earnings -- Priority -- Order. http://www.lrc.state.ky.us/KRS/425-00/506.PDF 511 Appearance of garnishee -- Failure to appear. http://www.lrc.state.ky.us/KRS/425-00/511.PDF 516 Payment by garnishee -- Costs. http://www.lrc.state.ky.us/KRS/425-00/516.PDF 521 Procedure if garnishee indebted to defendant. http://www.lrc.state.ky.us/KRS/425-00/521.PDF 526 Action by plaintiff against garnishee -- Attachment. http://www.lrc.state.ky.us/KRS/425-00/526.PDF Below you will find that I have carefully defined my search strategy for you in the event that you need to search for more information.
