Change in Garnishment Period Should Benefit Creditors

Garnishments against wages in Michigan are now effective for 182 days. Under the old law, wage garnishments were effective for 91 days. This change should save time and costs for creditors, who may now renew their garnishments every 6 months instead of every 3 months. The change will even benefit judgment debtors, as garnishment filing fees are initially paid by the creditor but are typically passed along to the debtor.
