Farewell to that pesky salary attachment order?
Is it really farewell to that pesky salary attachment order?
“I have read a recent article that says that due to a recent court judgement, salary attachment orders are no longer allowed. Is this correct and does that mean that the order against my salary is no longer valid?”
It is not correct that attachment orders, or legally more correct, emolument attachment orders (“EAO’s”), against your salary (generally, however incorrectly, referred to as ‘garnishee orders’) are no longer allowed and that these orders will now immediately be stopped. What is correct, though, is that substantial relief has been provided for debtors against the burden of these EAO’s.
