Garnishee order

An order made by a judge on behalf of a judgement creditor restraining a third party (often a bank), called a garnishee, from paying money to the judgement debtor until sanctioned to do so by the court. The order may also specify that the garnishee must pay a stated sum to the judgement creditor, or to the court, from the funds belonging to the judgement debtor.
