Can Creditors Garnish Wages Without Notifying The Debtor That Their Wages Will Be Garnished?

The garnishee is to receive and deliver a copy of the garnishment to the defendant. The defendant would then be on notice of the garnishment and could file an objection if he or she wished to do so. If the garnishee does not deliver the copy of the garnishment to the defendant then he or she would first be aware of the garnishment when they got their pay check.
