A: Well, one for the COurt, one copy to the debtor, one copy for the Garnishee (employer, bank etc...) but you need to serve this on the garnishee with a process server and place the $100 with the court for their fees in responding to your motion to garnish. Be also careful t oattach the list of exemptions the debtor could claim under the law.
