v. to obtain a court order directing a party holding funds (such as a bank) or about to pay wages (such as an employer) to an alleged debtor to set that money aside until the court determines (decides) how much the debtor owes to the creditor. Garnishing funds is also a warning to the party holding the funds (garnishee) not to pay them, and to inform the court as to how much money is being held. If the garnishee (such as a bank or employer) should mistakenly give the money to the account owner or employee, the garnishee will be liable to pay the creditor what he/she/it has coming. Garnishing wages is a typical means used to collect late child support and alimony payments or money judgments. Often the order will be to pay installment payments to the sheriff until the debt is collected. Then the sheriff pays the whole amount or payments to the person to whom the money is owed. See also: garnishee garnishment

    Hola soy chileno, resido en Viña del Mar, tengo a la fecha 64 años de edad, soy casado y padre de tres hijos ya todos profesionales, y fuera de casa, con sus propias familias en formación. Me desempeño como Corredor de Propiedades certificado por la Asociación de Corredores de Propiedades de Chile. Me gusta el idioma inglés y también el portugués. En Inglés gramaticalmente no tengo problemas, pero sí en los modismos y en vocabulario, es decir, tanto en forma oral como escrita, me comunico, pero hay palabras que nunca las he escuchado. Con los modismos me pasa lo mismo. Prefiero contactar con mujeres a las cuales ayudaré con mucho gusto con mi idioma español siempre que ayuden con mi aprendizaje en inglés. Las espero.
    Juanmanuel
