New Arizona Garnishment Legislation Signed Into Law

n March 22, 2019, Governor Doug Ducey signed Arizona House Bill (HB) 2230 into law. As described in detail in our recent article, HB 2230 allows judgment creditors to serve writs of garnishment by certified mail, return receipt requested, in addition to traditional methods of service. Arizona employers that are holding or allegedly holding money for garnishees (e.g., employee wages) must now file answers to writs of garnishment received by certified mail within 30 days of receiving the writ via the new service method of certified mail. Employers may want to keep in mind that they may be liable for a default judgment in the amount of the underlying judgment if no answer is timely made.

Further information on garnishments is provided in the O-D Comply: Garnishments, a comprehensive subscription-based product compiling state law garnishment requirements in a concise, user-friendly formats with links to state garnishment forms. O-D Comply: Garnishments is updated and provided to O-D Comply subscribers as the law changes.
