Attachment of earnings

A method by which money will be stopped from a person’s wages to pay a judgment debt. The judgment debtor’s employer must make payments out of his wages into court and the court then releases payment to the judgment creditor to satisfy the judgment debt. This enforcement method can only be used in the County Court. For more information, see Practice note, Attachment of earnings.
