I do not know who THEY are, but why not contact your own payroll department for copies of the court paperwork and follow the trail of breadcrumbs? Your creditors have no obligation to give you information once they have a court judgment against you.

If you dispute the creditors right to garnish, you must file in the case in which they obtained the garnishment and seek court intervention.

If it is still being garnished then you could send letter to work and creditor. If they still don't respond then sue them.

    Depending upon how large this debt that has resulted in a garnishment is, and/or what other debt you may have, you might want to consider bankruptcy. Bankruptcy would quite possibly wipe out the debt that you have and stop the garnishment in its tracks. Without more info, its hard to give you a more specific answer, but its already late in the game for you if your wages are already being garnished.

    I would suggest you go back to the debtor or the court and get some documentation that the garnishment is over and the debt has been satisfied and then provided to your HR department.
