If you have direct deposit and they garnished your Bank account; you may file a request for a hearing. The money will be held by the Court until the hearing and a Magistrate will decide how to disburse the money.
First, request a hearing and the money will be held by the Accounting/Finance Division. The hearing will be held to address the garnishment only. If you wish to contest the judgment, you need to seek legal advice.
The money is received by the Accounting/Finance Division of the Clerk's Office. After three weeks, it is sent to the Plaintiff or the attorney for the Plaintiff.
