When the debtor is owed money

If the debtor cannot pay because they are owed money by someone else, the creditor can apply for a garnishee order.

This means the person who owes money to the debtor, known as a garnishee, pays the money directly to the creditor.

To get a garnishee order, you must apply to the registrar of the court where the judgment was made.
