Most of the time, an individual has warning that their paycheck is about to be garnished. In Georgia, an ordinary creditor would first obtain a judgment against you in court before garnishing your wages and/or bank account. However, unlike ordinary creditors, AAFES and/or Military Star do not have to play by the same rules. They may start garnishing your wages without court process and without warning.
AAFES and/or Military Star have the authority to place an involuntary “allotment” on your wages. Relief is available in the form of bankruptcy protection.
