A creditor is an individual who is owed money. There are different types of creditors. Petitioning creditors are parties who are owed money from a debtor and who apply to the court of bankruptcy in order to secure a debtor’s property and distribute it equally among them all.

Under certain circumstances, petitioning creditors can force a debtor into bankruptcy without his/her consent. This is called an involuntary bankruptcy petition. When an involuntary bankruptcy petition is filed, a receiver or trustee is appointed to take charge of the debtor’s property until the case is judged.

What Is A Garnishment Bond?

what is a garnishment bond


Garnishment is the legal process that allows creditors to take money or property of a debtor to pay for a judgement. The most commonly garnished property is future wages and bank accounts. In garnishment, if there is a 3rd party that holds the debtor’s property they are referred to as the garnishee. For example, in a wage garnishment, the debtor’s employer would be the garnishee and in a bank account garnishment, the bank would be the garnishee.


Sometimes, before a final judgement is made in a court trial, a plaintiff might want to secure the debtor’s money or property somehow and ensure that once the lawsuit is finalized they will be able to access the debtor’s property, even if held by a third party. A plaintiff ensures this by getting a Garnishment Bond.
