Garnishment - State vs. Federal Procedures
Garnishment, a field once limited only by state or local regulation, has recently undergone a series of much-needed but somewhat questionable changes. These changes are not limited to one state alone, but encompass the entire nation. On July 1, 1970, when Title III of the Consumer Credit Protection Act became effective, this field of law came under the coverage of federal restrictions. In attempting to bring the existing Ohio statutes on garnishment into line with the federal restrictions, the Ohio Legislature passed a series of amendments which became effective on September 16, 1970.
