Do I need the Tenant's social security number and job address to garnish wages? What has been your experience (garnish vs collections)

Call your sheriffs civil office and ask,at least here that is who collects them.They will all be different so might as well ask the one who will be collecting --72.231.xxx.xxx

Yes, you will need social security # and employer information. Wage garnishment/ asset seizure processes are state specific.

My experience is that I thought it a waste of time, it is not. Like most things in life, the first attempt isn't smooth, but after dealing with a few garnishments, it is no problem. It is part of doing business and my job to be proficient at wage garnishment.

Judgements for rent are probably the bottom of the barrel for collection agencies, they can't afford to do much, and they don't. So, unless your judgement is against an easily collected person, they won't likely collect often.

My most valuable takeaway from doing wage garnishments myself is the improvement in tenant screening that comes. I have found that the people that are hard to garnish are the most likely to leave without settling their account. I have learned to identify and to avoid them. --149.76.xxx.xxx

Here with the court judgement we first motion for a debtor exam on the civil case and when they don't appear we motion to move to criminal which stops them from renewing driver license and registration tags, every court district is different so you need to understand how your court operates. --76.188.xxx.xxx

Social Security benefits cannot be garnished by a landlord. --107.141.xx.xxx

Mary, as for hard to wage garnish: pensioners, job hoppers, 1099 truck drivers, self employed.

MYOB once posted something to the effect of the job that the applicant has must be as good a job as the applicant can likely get. They must want to keep their job.

Now seizing bank accounts, personal property is another way to collect, obviously, they must be solid citizens who maintain a bank account, and or have valuable personal property.

Vee, how does a case go from civil to criminal if deadbeat doesn't show up to court? --184.176.xx.xxx
