Description

Form of garnishment summons; maximum portion of disposable earnings subject to garnishment. Provides that the form of garnishment summons will state that an employee who makes the minimum wage or less for his week's earnings will ordinarily get to keep 40 times the minimum hourly wage when such earnings are subject to a garnishment, not 30 times as stated in Title 8.01, Civil Remedies and Procedures. The bill is intended to reflect the current statutory requirement for exemptions in Title 34, Homestead and Other Exemptions, and is technical in nature. The bill further directs the Office of the Executive Secretary of the Supreme Court to update the form of garnishment summons accordingly. Amends § 8.01-512.3, of the Code of Virginia.
