i.
If they do not, then check the “No” box, and send the form back.
ii.

periods, hourly wage, gross pay, and required deductions from gross pay.
The Answer explains how to calculate the amount you need to withhold for the
garnishment/turnover order.
iii. If a positive amount is listed on section 4M on the Answer, withhold that amount until
there is a court order to turn over the wages or the Citation is dismissed.
iv. If income varies, withholding must be recalculated for every pay period.
c. Sign the form, file the original with the Circuit Clerk who issued the Citation, and keep
a copy for yourself. Give or send a copy of the completed Answer to the debtor and to the

to or less than $371.25 if paid weekly; $742.50 if paid bi-weekly; $804.38 if paid semi-
monthly, or $1,608.75 if paid monthly. If the debtor’s wages after taxes are more than this
