Denver, CO asked in Collections for Colorado

Q: Do I need to go thru court for a second garnishment?

Defendant went to once a week on 1st garnishment (so he wouldn't get garnished), and got a second job. Is the 1st garnishment good enough or do I need to go thru court for the second employer?

A: You will need to service notice to the second employer of the garnishment and file with the court (assuming you want to be a judgment creditor). You will not need to re-litigate the facts of the case. You may need to get a court order depending on whether the debtor objects to the garnishment. The CO Courts has a whole section on this here is a link to the site (look for "garnishment" in the center tab): .
