IMPORTANT: Garnishment procedures are governed by Arizona law and are extremely complicated. It is advised that parties receive legal advice.
There are generally three parties to a garnishment proceeding:
- Judgment Creditor: a person or entity who has been granted a money judgment
- Judgment Debtor: a person or entity who owes a money judgment
- Garnishee: a person or entity holding money or property belonging to a judgment debtor
Garnishment is a process that helps the creditor collect on the judgment by accessing money or property that belongs to the debtor, but is currently held by the garnishee.
There are two types of garnishment proceedings:
- Garnishment of earnings (wages the debtor is earning at a job)
- Garnishment of non-earnings (such as bank accounts, etc.)
Our "How-To" packets should provide all that you need. Some garnishment cases may have special circumstances which need forms that are not included in the packets. Please contact a court to receive what you need.
Make sure to download the correct packet or form for your type of garnishment case:

All case types except for Small Claims may be appealed. Some, such as evictions, have very tight deadlines. In the event you do not complete your part of the appeal in time, it may be considered abandoned and dismissed.
Arizona voters passed Proposition 207 in November, 2020. Among its provisions is the ability to petition a court at no cost to expunge certain marijuana-related records. Please ensure you have read the information on our Prop 207 web page before using these forms to begin the process.
There is a court cost for filing many, but not all, of the forms above.
We know there are hardships which limit any individual's source of funds. There are times when court filing fees may be deferred or waived. A deferral puts off the costs to be paid for filing until after the case is resolved. A waiver removes the costs involved.
Persons who are unable to pay court filing fees may apply for a waiver or deferral. Court policies for fee deferral and waiver applications are listed in section 5-206 of the Arizona Code of Judicial Administration.
IMPORTANT: You must speak with a court clerk before submitting your application.
