What is the Arizona wage garnishment process?
The Arizona wage garnishment process may begin by court order or a request by the support recipient. The court may begin garnishment proceedings without assigning a court date to review the case.
Information, such as the obligor’s name, address, and social security number are collected and, if wage garnishment proceeds, a form is sent to the obligor’s employer specifying the amount of monies to be deducted from each check and sent to the department of economic security for disbursement to the obligee.
The employer must comply with the court order and deductions must be processed within 14 days of receipt. An employer cannot ignore the wage assignment for any reason.
