How does a collection agency go about garnishing payroll?

My wages have been garnished and I don't know how it happened.

Your employer will be contacted and your payroll check will be deducted on the court ordered money amount. It will continue until debt paid.

The rules for this vary from state to state. In general, they present proof to a judge that you owe the debt and have not paid.

The collection agency first has to send you a civil judgement through your county. Then after that they will send you and your employer the paper work that states if you agree with the amount that will be taken out.
