(E) Child Support deductions have priority over all Wage Deduction Orders.

If you receive a Summons after Conditional Judgment, this means that the Employer did not respond to the original Wage Deduction Summons.

If service was not proper, contact your attorney without delay or call Plaintiff Judgment Creditor’s attorney to further discuss the matter. If you fail to respond to a Summons After Conditional Judgment, a final judgment may be entered against the employer. A final judgment means that Plaintiff - Judgment Creditor can garnish the employer’s bank accounts to collect on the judgment. 5. If the employer has any questions, they must contact their attorney. While the attorney for the creditor will be generally helpful, they are looking out for the interests of the Plaintiff - Judgment Creditor, not the employer. 6.
