Motion For Continuing Garnishment form in the state of Florida. On page 2 of that form, it states, " Plaintiff further moves the court to award the Plaintiff the costs incurred in this Garnishment action in the sum of $___." What cost do I add and/or place in the blank__?
Every county clerk website has a page of fees. I imagine that you will file the motion in person, so the cost to file the garnishment is $85.00. The sheriff will serve the writ in your county for $40.00. *Make sure you get the garnishee correct.* If the garnishee hires an attorney to file an answer...Read more »

If you paid a debt to zero, the debt is paid. You should probably take every bit of paper (letters, statements, etc., that you have on this debt) to a lawyer and let him or her determine if the debt was in fact, paid off.
