garnishee proceedings

A procedure by which a judgment creditor may obtain a court order against a third party who owes money to, or holds money on behalf of, the judgment debtor. The order requires the third party to pay the money (or part of it) to the judgment creditor. For example, if the judgment debtor has 1000 in a bank account and judgment has been entered against him for 500, the court may order the bank to pay 500 direct to the judgment creditor.
