Changes to Garnishee Orders in NSW

Monday, July 30, 2018 - Posted by Michael McCulloch

There has been an amendment to the requirements for issuing Garnishee Orders for Ddebts. If you are using this enforcement action, you must now state the grounds relied on in support of identifying a debt owed by the Garnishee to the Judgment Debtor in the form of an Affidavit.

UCPR 39.35 now states:

(1) Unless the court orders otherwise, an applicant for a garnishee order must file an affidavit in support of the application, being an affidavit sworn not more than 14 days before the date of filing.
(2) The affidavit in support:
(a) must identify the garnishee, and any debts that are, or are reasonably likely to be, owed by the garnishee to the judgment debtor, and
(a1) must state the grounds relied on in support of identifying a debt for the purposes of paragraph (a), and
(b) must state the amount payable under the judgment, together with any costs and interest payable in relation to the judgment, as at the date of swearing of the affidavit.

For advice as to what this legislative change may mean to you and future applications for Garnishee Orders we recommend that you contact Collection Law Partners or seek your own independent advice from a qualified legal practitioner.
